En Garde! Welcome to the Iowa City Fencing Center!

Tuesday, January 22nd - It's slick outside, but we're here!

It's icy out there! We are here, but if you would rather skip the slipppery drive and make up class later this week, feel free to do so. And if you were planning on making up Saturday's class today, you are welcome to make it up next week instead. See our class schedule under the calendar tab above for possible make up times.


Beginner Classes Start the Week of February 17th

Our Programs

Fencing isn't just a great fitness activity. It relieves stress, burns calories, strengthens muscles, and it's fun, too! Movement is also fun and healthy; you can meet people and make new friendships at any age.


Children improve focus, coordination, confidence, and develop fast-paced problem solving skills. Find out more about our group and private instruction opportunities!


Our Facility

Opened in 2010 by our coach, Judy O'Donnell, the Iowa City Fencing Center is an air-conditioned facility featuring special athletic flooring and grounded metal strips for competitive training.
