Beginner Program

New students to our fencing classes begin their journey with an Introductory private fencing lesson with one of our experienced coaches. Call or email to schedule your first fencing lesson! No membership required to begin!

Novice fencers with no or less than six months of experience, we recommend starting with an Introductory Package of private lessons. During private fencing lessons we will teach you correct fencing actions, footwork and other fundamental aspects to help you succeed!

We recommend 8 private lessons in order to be ready to join our ongoing group classes safely and with confidence.

Beginner Private Lessons: $50 per lesson (non-member)
$40 per lesson (member)

Kid: 6-9 | Youth: 10-13 | Teen: 14-17 | Adult: 18+

All fencing equipment is provided. No TFC membership is required*, simply tell us your age group, choose your time preference, and email us.

We offer classes Monday to Saturday, and students may choose one or two classes per week to start.

Those who want to continue fencing recreationally can register for another 8 week course to learn more advanced skills with the same coach.

Those who want to participate in our competitive stream can join the club as a member with monthly or yearly membership.  Competitive fencers purchase their own equipment and schedule 2-3 half hour private lessons per week with our high performance coaches. You can train as many as five evenings per week and improve your fitness at our famous Saturday half-day training camp. Within a few months you should able to fence electric with our national level fencers.

Mandatory: general sportswear (T shirt and track pants), court/running shoes (absolutely no street shoes allowed). A towel and bottle of water, as well a change of clothing, are recommended–you will be sweating!

Experiencing fencing is as simple as that.  Don’t hesitate message, email, or call us for details.
