TriWeapon Boys Club


Tri-Weapon Club

The Tri-Weapon Club is the only fencing club in the Baltimore-Washington-Annapolis area designed for boys rather than adults. As our name says, we specialize in not one, but all three fencing weapons: foil, épée and sabre.

Membership in the club is limited to boys from ages 8-17 (or senior year in high school), although boys younger than 8 may be accepted in certain instances.

Since the club was formed in 1961, TWC fencers have excelled at the national, sectional, and local levels. They have won the state team titles, dominated the state age-group championships year after year, and won medals in sectional tournaments. Twelve boys thus far have been able to attend college because of their fencing talent, and TWC has three National Under-16 champions to its credit.

Three of the top four places in the 1993 U.S. National sabre championship were taken by TWC graduates, and two of these men also fenced on the 1988 and 1992 United States Olympic teams. We are very proud of our program and our history that has produced outstanding fencers and scholars.

At Tri-Weapon Club we teach lessons that are used not only on the strip but in business and life. Honor, Respect, Courage, Discipline, Intelligence, Responsibility, Determination. Win or lose, you learn something and refine your skills to be better prepared the next time.

Our boys learn not only the basic moves and how to fence, but how to succeed during competition, the tactics of winning. They are taught the rules and how to judge an event, seeing the action from all sides. They are taught how to maintain and repair their weapons and the equipment needed to support a modern electronic bout, and how proper care can be the difference between winning and losing. They are taught how to manage a fencing event, both the participants and the spectators.

This holistic approach makes our fencers more knowledgeable about the sport and better able to control their own destiny, both on the strip and in life.

Tri-Weapon Club was founded in 1961 by the late Richard F. Oles, fencing master and is the oldest non-collegiate fencing club in Maryland.
