Updates and Announcements
Wednesday Classes Will Start At 6PM Starting June 7
Starting June 7, 2023, Wednesday classes will shift 15 minutes earlier and start at 6PM. For all students that will be moving up to the older class on Wednesdays, the class itself lasts an hour, but all students in these classes are expected to fence electric after class. Typically fencers will stay for another half hour to 45 minutes doing open electric fencing, but you can leave whenever you like and stay however long you like. Students in this class tend to compete more frequently so we spend additional time practicing in full competition gear.

Support and Watch Fencing!
Gabriel, Isabelle, and Isaac are fencing at the Raleigh North American Cup. You’ll get to watch some great fencing, there will be 6 events each day, over 600 fencers competing in each day, probably over 30 strips of fencing, and the semi-finals and finals stages! It’s a sight to behold (see picture below)! There will also be equipment vendors. (I know for certain Absolute Fencing Gear will be on site. Leon Paul Fencing Gear will not be available.) If you’re looking to purchase your beginner set, or get new equipment, try on shoes and uniforms, get your name printed on your uniform, the Raleigh North American Cup will be the place to do it!
Gabriel and Isaac will be fencing on Friday, June 2, 2023, Isabelle will be fencing on June 3, 2023. Times have not yet been posted.
