Beginner Fencer Program

Beginner Program


Our Beginner Program is an 8 week program, but, all fencers trying out our club get 2 free sessions, so beginners get a total of 10 sessions to try out fencing at a very low price, without creating any additional commitment. We provide all necessary gear. Students should wear athletic clothes, long pants, safe tennis shoes (court shoes, cross trainers, or running shoes with good traction, no deck shoes or skate boarding shoes).


Our beginner program has two primary options.


For youth fencers (generally ages 8 to 12, but sometimes younger students are accepted) we have a Thursday evening class which is especially designed to be fun, exciting, and introduce them to a broad view of the world of fencing. The class is very dynamic and kids have a great time. Parents can get in on the fun too. Many parents like to take this class with their child and turn fencing into a great shared activity. Currently this class meets from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Thursdays.



For older fencers (generally 12 and up) we can arrange an individual option for their beginner class. Adult and older teen beginners will be paired with a coach or an advanced student and take lessons and be given drills and bouting opportunities during an open bouting time slot. Teenagers will typically enter into their gender appropriate class and work with an advanced student or coach during their beginner sessions while participating in group class activities.



After completing the ten beginner sessions, which can be completed over a three month period (they do not have to be consecutive weeks) the beginner fencer has the option of joining the appropriate group program, TriWeapon Boys Club, Fencing Institute of America Baltimore Girls Club, or Salle Palasz. Once they are a full member in one of our clubs they have access to unlimited open bouting and group classes, and one lesson per week, as well as additional benefits.


Our beginner classes are priced for affordability to give everyone with the slightest curiosity about fencing the opportunity to try. Our 8 + 2 = 10 Sessions Package is only $160. That’s only $16 per session. Discounts are available for families.
