Fencing here has been great for my kids. My daughter is more of an introvert and didn't want the pressure of a team sport, but she was also looking for a supportive team environment. My son needed something physically challenging and a ton of fun! Fencing here is competitive but supportive; individualized but within a diverse group. It's a perfect blend and suits both of my children perfectly!
I’ve been involved in a lot of sports through the years and can state that hands-down fencing offers the best combination of mental and physical engagement. Started in my 40’s because my son was into it and have made countless memories and friends through the years. Give it a try!
The club is a fantastic place to learn fencing with a great group and wonderful coach. If you're an experienced fencer, you will find some of the most competitive teammates in the state at the club. If you've never fenced then you will get to grow your health, confidence, and skills. I've been fencing a while and can say that this is one of the best clubs in the country.
I started coming to the club with my daughter. It’s been 4 years and I am still loving every second. Fencing has unique components combination of skills and thought process we really utilize in other daily activities. After my heart surgery my cardiologist was very happy with my recovery and recommended that I continue with fencing because it helped me get better. Coach Robert is amazing with kids and adults. His knowledge and expertise are known in fencing circles for raising great generations of junior and cadet students champions.
