Why Start Fencing?
Fencing provides great exercise, you get a chance to meet new friends, you learn a new skill, and it’s a great conversation starter. Kids apply discipline and problem solving skills learned at home and school; adults get to network in a small community. Our fencers learn how to succeed both in winning and in failure; teen fencers can continue to collegiate varsity programs. And let’s face it, we love to play with swords.
