This is an Olympic sport hundreds of years in the making, founded upon historical context, and popularized in countless books & movies. Kids and adults love to fence because it is a challenging game of "physical chess." In reality, fencing is a complex, dynamic, as well as technical and tactical, multidimensional sport." The study of fencing yields increased fitness, as well as improved executive functioning, decision-making, and problem-solving skills. Fencing is a sport for life.
Our fencing program draws out the best of what each student has to offer, not only in sport but equally, in character. We specialize in youth development and follow a pedagogical approach to teach the art and sport of fencing.
