Classes starting July 16
Continuing fencers, click for Intermediate
Tired of those boring stretches on the treadmill? Yoga too zen? Try fencing! It's a great workout that challenges your mind, too. And yes, adults can compete: there are even specific divisions for fencers 40-plus, 50s, 60s, and even 70s! Even if you choose not to compete, it's a sport you can enjoy your entire lifetime.
Adult groups are limited to 14 students.
Aren't sure which class to join? If you have had some past fencing experience and are starting up again after more than a year's break, we recommend signing up for the beginner group. The first couple of classes will get you reoriented to the basics, and then you can easily switch over to private lessons or an intermediate group once you feel caught up. If you prefer, we're happy to have a coach talk with you about your experience and recommend the best fit.
BEGINNER - $240 / 8 weeks
Welcome to fencing! Equipment is included for use during beginner groups; however we do strongly encourage fencers to buy their own mask and glove (about $70), which you can order at your first class. Beginners should wear sweatpants (not shorts or jeans) and exercise shoes. There is also an annual registration fee of $55 due the first day of class; if you prefer, pre-pay annual registration fee here. Thursday's saber group is mixed-level, fine for beginners, but please note you will need to purchase your own weapon after the first month for this group.
- Wednesdays 7:30-8:30 PM - Starting Nov 28th
- Thursdays (saber) 7:30-8:30 PM - Rolling admission
That doesn't fit my schedule...
Private lessons are most likely your best option; one on one with a coach, private lessons are a good way of experiencing the sport that is flexible to your schedule. Generally private lessons may be scheduled any time we're open that is convenient for you, and will often mean your fencer advances faster than in group classes since each lesson is tailored to their individual growth. For more information or to schedule a lesson, please call us at 718.522.5822. Note there is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all private lessons.
