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!
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.
