About Fencing

Fencing (foil, epee, sabre)...

Fencing, the art of swordsmanship, has been practiced since the sixteenth century. Once the prerogative of aristocrats, this ancient art has become a modern Olympic event that combines the elements of feinting, parrying, attacking, and riposting in a lightning display of grace and dexterity. The speed of competition is such that electronic scoring of hits is needed to judge bouts.

Through fencing you can acquire the reflexes and timing of a boxer, the muscle tone of a gymnast, and the strategic abilities of a chess master. The sport develops agility and speed as it builds strength and cunning.

We understand that everyone has different goals. We respect your goals and help you be the best you can be while working with you at your individual pace.

Swordplay offers private lessons and group classes to individuals of all ages and every level of expertise. The additional benefits of monthly membership allow you to progress at your own pace. The teaching staff offers instruction for foil, épée, and sabre.
