Open Fencing

Welcome to Open Fencing at Fencing Academy of Boston!

Unlock the thrill of unstructured fencing with our Open Fencing sessions – the perfect opportunity for experienced fencers, ages 15 and above, to hone their skills, enjoy spirited bouts, and connect with like-minded enthusiasts. Dive into the world of Open Fencing, where every lunge, parry, and riposte takes you one step closer to fencing excellence.

What is Open Fencing?

Open Fencing is more than just practice; it’s a community of passionate fencers engaging in bouts outside of a structured class. It’s the ideal setting for refining techniques, testing strategies, and fostering camaraderie among fellow enthusiasts.

Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30-10:00pm are designated for Foil Fencers.**

Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30-10:00pm are designated for Saber Fencers.**

Fencers are not restricted to those nights – contact your fellow fencers and meet up at your convenience during club hours for added practice, provided it does not interfere with our classes.

**If you are planning your first visit to FAB for Open Fencing nights, it’s advised to email or call 617-924-4466 first to let us know you’re coming. Our regular members love to meet new people!
