Why should my child or I fence?
Fencing is a mentally stimulating sport that holds one’s attention at every moment. Fencers are usually bright and creative, and enjoy the opportunity to individually face an opponent as opposed to the team-sport dynamic. Fencing provides a unique setting conducive to personal challenge and extreme focus.
What do I need?
Certain fencing equipment is required to compete. Fencing Sports Academy offers all equipment to borrow prior to you or your child’s first competition. Once you begin to compete, we will provide resources on exactly what you need and where to find it (most fencing equipment is readily available online). Your weapon is extremely personal and important; we have expert armorers on staff to consult on weapons choices for each fencing student.
What options are there for different ages?
Fencing Sports Academy fosters opportunities for fencers of all ages, including intra-club competitions for young children who may not otherwise get a chance to compete, along with competition routes for Senior and Veteran fencers. Families who wish to fence together may also schedule private and group lessons in coordination.
How does the competition cycle work?
There are many different competition options based on each fencer’s goals, skill level and desired points accumulation. Our professional coaches will help you find the most suitable competition for your level and fencing career goals, with options available for all ages.
Speaking of which, do I have to fence competitively?
Fencing Sports Academy welcomes fencing students of every kind. Our expert, internationally renowned coaches excel in training competitive fencers, and offer camps and workshops focused on technique for the competitive fencer. Yet we also welcome fencers who wish to simply learn the basics or who wish to learn an intense, physically and mentally stimulating sport without competing.
Is there a typical timeline to become a good fencer?
Experience will help you achieve competitive fencing goals, and your fencing timeline is under your personal control. We offer a flexible schedule of group and private lessons, with different schedule opportunities and plans based on the fencing career you wish to have
How physically-intensive is fencing?
