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!
