My daughter started fencing here at age 7, now she’s been recruited for fencing to college and become very accomplished. The club is big part of our extended family and we love it here.
Both of my teenage sons started fencing and loved it. I started fencing to have a deeper connection with them and a better understanding of what they loved so much. We actually entered the North America Cup team event as Herrera, Herrera & Herrera! This club is a special place that inspires everyone to try their best. They see everyone’s potential.
My sons are now in college, and I’m the one competing nationally these days!
I bought this (one month trial class) for my husband because he’s wanted to try fencing for years. I never expected to fall in love with the sport! Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly.
I cannot begin to express how great and supportive this club is. The coaching is world class and it’s great to see the kids improve. The culture of this club is very different from what I’ve seen from other regional clubs. The focus is on fun, fitness, health and sportsmanship. Don’t misunderstand – this is a competitive club – training regional through national champions. I highly recommend this club and would encourage you or your ids to come check it out…
All our beginners classes for kids 7+ and adults are on Saturdays . The kids class Trial class starts at 1:00 p.m, the adult class (ages 15+) starts at 10:30 a.m, year round. Call (503-644-7739) to make a class reservation as class size is limited. We are still requiring masks, hand santizer or hand washing and temperature checks . One parent may accompany child in to watch. Our club is filled with children, not just adults – so please wear your mask as many of the children are to young to get vaccinated. All staff is vaccinated.
No, you don’t have to buy or rent gear to get started. We loan you all the starter gear to try the sport out. Please wear tight fitting athletic shoes, a loose comfy t-shirt, basketball shorts or loose pants that cover your knees (fleece or tight jeans are NOT ideal), and if you have long hair bring a ponytail holder. All the equipment is sanitized after EACH use. Bring a water bottle.
Once you finish the trial classes and join the club, then you start to acquire your gear starting with an inexpensive glove $15 – $20.00
No, you are not too old to start fencing! The ideal time to start is now. Fencing is a life long sport with competitive categories up into the 80’s+. Our adult program is both recreational and competitive so you can go at your own pace.
Your child should be at least age 7 to start with us. Many times the sword is bigger than the child! Age 8 is a good time to start, and any age from there on is an ideal age to get started. Youth categories are: Ages 8-10, Ages 10-12, Ages 12-14, Ages 14-16, Ages 17- 20, and up.
If you are an adult fencer, come on into the club on Saturday morning. All adult classes start footwork together, than split into groups by skill level. Our coaches can evaluate you to see where you will be most comfortable. If your fencer is a child that has fenced before, give us call (503-644-7739) to let us recommend which level to start in with a coach assessment.
