way parties

Ridgefield Rave Events is the "alter ego" of Way of the Sword. By day we are a mild mannered youth development fencing club but at night we transform into an immaculate party venue that will surprise and delight you.

Watch as we transform our fencing club into a hip, non-alcoholic, "nightclub" for teen and kid parties. You won't believe your eyes...


From chess to scrabble, board games serve as an educational tool aiding in the learning of planning, cause and effect relationships, pattern recognition, and research. 

Congrats to all our fencers taking home a little hardware today.
