After School

An on-site/off-site fencing enrichment  program for afterschool programs

Introduction to Fencing

This fencing program provides students an opportunity to learn and enjoy the FUNdamentals of fencing through group instruction, paired work, games, activities, and plenty of hands-on dueling with their peers. Together we'll explore the technical skills and discover the value of competing with total integrity.

Appropriate for all ages from 7+  Students are broken out by age prior to dueling. Classes are progressive but new students are welcome to join.

You look marvelous

Looking and feeling good is important because when your uniform fits right and feels comfortable you perform better. Equipment is provided. Each student is custom fitted and is given the option of a different fabric (cotton vs nylon) if tactile issues arise.

Honor before glory

We weave our core values of honesty, humility, integrity, and trust into every moment. Our curriculum is designed to challenge students to perform their best and make good decisions both on and off the fencing strip. We focus on taking responsibility and honoring mistakes, which are inevitable, through acknowledgment and respect.
