Why Fencing?

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.

Why WAY?

Way-Full-WhiteOnly

More than a fencing club, a fencing community

One of the earliest forms of civilized rivalry, fencing has evolved over the ages as a sport that embodies honor, discipline, and self-expression.  Way of the Sword is a USFA sanctioned club dedicated to promoting Olympic fencing. Our offerings include personal fencing instruction while teaching skills for honorable living in today’s fast-paced and often challenging culture.  Our unique curriculum is designed to bring pupils to a deep understanding of fencing both as a sport and art form as well as of themselves as responsible, reflective, and well-meaning citizens. We use traditional training methods, creative facilitation practices, and character education to develop strong athletes and individuals. Students of the "Way" improve their ability to visualize, execute, recover, and finish with impunity. Simply stated, students, learn the WAY to "confidence."
