Adult and teens are required to take two $70 60-minute private lessons to join the Level I classes. You may start at any time of the year. This will give you a comfortable environment to learn about the basic footwork, bladework, equipment and rules of fencing. To schedule the required private session please email Rich Strittmatter.

Lesson times are scheduled when there are no classes or other distractions in the room. After two lessons we find that the students are prepared for a fun experience with other fencers.


Please bring clean athletic shoes, water bottle, T-shirt and sweat pants. We will provide all other needed equipment.
