Our mission is to provide both recreational and competitive fencers the opportunity to affordably learn the proper technique of sport fencing. We promote healthy competition and model good sportsmanship. We believe fencing can serve as a model for life. Who you are as a fencer is who you are as an adult.

Fencing has a rich connection to history. As a modern sport, it develops not only physical and technical skills, but encourages quick thinking, creative problem-solving, concentration, and self-discipline.

Schoolhouse FencingĀ  provides a healthy, safe environment where skills are developed through the use of warm-ups, games, drills, and challenges. All athletes / students are encouraged to progress at their own rate.

There will be opportunities for students to participate in local tournaments based on their skill levels, as well as higher level competitions for those wishing to challenge themselves even more.

Study Guides will be available to students enrolled in the Stage Programs for a comprehensive goal and task oriented learning progression.

CAMPS

Schoolhouse Fencing offers different fencing programs for the beginning, the recreational, and the competitive fencer. We also have training camps for our local, and not so local, fencers.

Camps and classes are available to anyone and everyone who is interested in learning and enriching themselves.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Personal lessons are available on a time allowable basis. Students will get even more direction and focus on their development of technique, tactics, and strategies based on their particular stylization and requirements

OPEN FENCE NIGHT

Wednesday nights are an “Open Fence” night. From 7:00 to 9:00 pm there will be strips available for those club members who wish to fence with different levels of other fencers without the regimented class structure.

Stage One

For brand new fencers (beginners) and anyone who has been out of the sport for a while. This class teaches the basic fundamentals of footwork, bladework, and the combination of the two into a cohesive package for both recreational and competitive capabilities. Students should expect to be enrolled in Stage One classes for about four months before attempting to add Stage Two classes. This will enable the learning of the basics to get ingrained before expanding the learning environment.

Stage Two

This class will add to the knowledge learned in Stage One and progressively lead to a more rounded fencer incorporating higher level tactics and strategies required for competitions. Along with more advanced learning of the physical aspects, students will explore into the mental aspects of the game. Regular reviews of fencing experiences, analyzing, and deductive solutions are incorporated.

Students in Stage Two should have at least four months experience in Stage One before making the addition of Stage Two. Concurrent enrollment in Stages One and Two is advised.

Stage Three

This class is designed for fencers with competitive experience, and is to expand the horizons and possibilities of each fencer. We expand the game strategically, tactically, and mentally for relational applications to various opponents. This class is for those students who wish to compete locally, regionally, nationally, and inter-nationally.
