Fencing Academy of Boston introduces the exciting and energetic sport of saber fencing to youths in Youth Beginner Fencing (ages 9-14) and Fabbies Fencing (ages 6-9). Students will get to practice their new fencing moves by the end of the first class. Don’t worry about buying any equipment – all you need is a t-shirt, long stretchy athletic pants (no shorts allowed), and clean, dry sneakers, and we’ll provide the protective and electric gear. Students who go on to enroll in an 8-week intro course may be ready to progress to classes in our Youth Competitive Program after one term.

Youth Beginner Fencing is for older children and early teens aged 9-14
          Summer Schedule: 10-11:30am   
          Fall Schedule: Mondays 4-5:30pm and Saturdays 12-1:30pm

Fabbies Fencing is for younger children aged 6-9
          Summer Schedule: 12-1pm (if enrollment is low per class date, may be combined at the 10-11:30am class)    
          Fall Schedule: Wednesdays 4-5:30pm and Sundays 10-11:30am

Don’t worry about buying any equipment – all you need is a t-shirt, long pants that are stretchy and athletic (no shorts allowed), and clean, dry sneakers, and we’ll provide the protective and electric gear to start fencing by the end of your first class. Students who go on to enroll in the 8-week intro course are often ready to join Fencing Academy of Boston as members. Your favorite new activity is just one fencing class away!

See our “What is Fencing?” page to learn the similarities and strategical differences between foil and saber weapons that we teach and fence at FAB. Adult Intro will instruct in foil, and fencers, after completing at least one term, can decide to continue in foil or switch to saber with private instruction.

Adult Intro to Fencing classes are for adults and teens aged 15+
          Adult Intro to Foil: Mondays 8-9pm
          Summer – Register ahead to drop-in
