    Fencing Classes

    Fencing is a safe and fun individual sport that is wonderful for all ages and all athletic abilities. It is a great sport for developing general athletic skills including, speed, agility, and coordination. As a youth sport fencing helps build self-esteem, develops self-confidence, and promotes physical fitness.

    Fencing teaches respect for self, teammates, competitors, and coaches. These practiced skills help fencers, of any age, learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and to think quickly. These life skills help people achieve their full potential!
