Fencing Classes for All Levels

Our camps, lessons, and classes focus on electric epee fencing, the modern evolution of the rapier duel. Epee fencing is the most straightforward of the three Olympic Fencing disciplines. In this form, the athlete that hits first scores the touch and the whole body acts as the target.  Club membership and use of club gear is included in the cost of all classes.
