January Class Full

We have hit capacity for our beginner class that starts January 8th.  Our next chance for beginners to start will be Wednesday, March 25th 2020.

We will take 2-3 additional RSVPs for the wait list and let people know the first week in January if we have cancellations.  RSVP by email at

If you have RSVP’d but can’t make it in, please let us know at so I can accommodate those on the wait list.

If you’re a fencer with previous experience or an ACS student, please reach out by email or phone and we’ll work something out.

Fencing Resumes August 28th – Sept 4th for Beginners

Fencing will resume on August 28th for all previous students who were practicing at any time in the 2018-2019 season.   If you fenced last year, you’ll be a member of the intermediate class (also 7pm-8pm) and/or be welcome to attend Open fencing (8pm-10pm) as you prefer.   Please talk to Bren if you have questions about what group is best for you.  Returning members must renew their USA Fencing membership at (at least) the $10 non-competitive level.

For New Beginners, the beginner class will start on September 4th.  Please RSVP by emailing   (If we already emailed, no need to do it again.)  The first class is a free trial to see if the sport is right for you.   More details here:

After this session of the beginner class, the next chance for new beginners to start will be January 8th 2020.

Our next group of beginners will start this week on Wed 3/27 from 7:00-8:15pm.
