Fencing is like “Physical Chess" and is the solution for individuals looking to take the boredom out of exercise.

The physical demands of fencing are easy on the body and promote a lifetime opportunity for fitness.

Is fencing hard to learn?
The basics are fairly easy. The best aspect of the sport is that you never stop learning. Each fencer has their own style, and every individual brings something to the sport that everyone can learn from.
What should I wear?
All you really need to wear to a beginners' class or a regular club session are a comfortable set of athletic shoes (court shoes work best), a T-shirt, long warm-up pants (not shorts) and long socks. The club will provide everything else you need to be properly protected during a fencing bout.
