My son loves the club, the coaches, his teammates, everyone is so helpful. We’ve found a new community and made great friends along the way.
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.
I didn’t start fencing until I was 61. I always curious wanted to try it after seeing it in the movies. It has changed my life! I fell in love with how it has challenged and kept me mentally and physically fit. I’ve made the U.S. National team and been to the Veteran World championships 5x, and won the gold medal for the women’s team event. The coaches here have kept me motivated and make me feel a part of the family.
My daughter started here at age 10 and has grown up surrounded by coaches who have high standards yet set the tone for great family values. Now my young son and even my wife are fencing, and all three are winning national medals. The family atmosphere really sets this club apart.

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 tightly fitting athletic shoes, loose comfy t-shirt, basketball shorts or loose pants that cover your knees (fleece or tight jeans are NOT ideal), if you have long hair bring a ponytail holder.
No, you are not to 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 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 7-8 is a good time to start. Any age from there on is an ideal time to get started. Youth categories are: Ages 8-10, Ages 10-12, Ages 12-14, Ages 14-16, 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 and a coach assessment.
