It is required for fencers at this level to have or begin purchasing their own equipment for electric fencing. We can help you order the right stuff! Private lessons are recommended and available by appointment.

It is not allowed (due to COVID-19 restrictions) or advised to show up without notice, due both to capacity limits and some sporadic attendance where we may cancel some nights of open fencing, and will not be posted on our website or social media. Please be patient with us during these interesting times.
