Summer-Fall update – RSVP for Beginner and Intermediate classes

Every Wednesday from here until September we should be open for practice.

Please check back here or Facebook before heading over though, we often have to cancel summer practices on shorter than usual notice.

Fall Kickoff for Intermediate Foil Class will be 7pm September 5th

This year we are creating a more organized intermediate Foil program from 7pm to 8:30pm every Wednesday night.   This program will involve electric boutwork and more intensive training for fencers that have completed one or more cycles of beginner classes.   If you are interested in this program please attend at 7pm on September 5th.  This program requires commitment to purchase (at once or over time) electric equipment.

Beginner classes start September 12th. 

Please RSVP by email to reserve your spot.   Send RSVPs to fencingclubasheville@gmail.com

We expect this class to fill up.   There will be a waiting list as well and we will let people on the wait list know if there is a spot open on September 6th.  If you are not on the RSVP list we will not be able to squeeze you into practice.  The gym has only so much room for people to wave swords around in safely.   The next beginner class will start the first week of January.

Summer Schedule – Spring Session Wrap up
