World Champions! Sherry Green (center) brings the gold home to PDX Fencing

You are never to old to start fencing! Our Sherry Green started fencing at age 61 and made the U.S. National Veteran’s team to the World Championships 5x, then won the gold medal in the Women’s saber team event. Fencing is a lifelong sport, that keeps you fit mentally and physically in a fun way.

Our adult program takes beginner’s who have never fenced before, people who fenced years ago and want to try it again, and those who have kept fencing once they learned the sport. Stay recreational or competitive – its up to you, we go at your pace. Click here to read about the benefits of adult fencing and why and when you should give it a try.

Adults Beginner & Recreational

Just starting out? Our beginners class is the right place.  Wear a loose comfortable T-Shirt, long shorts that cover the knees (basketball shorts are great), or yoga pants (no fleece -too hot!), tightly fitting athletic shoes and if you have long hair bring a ponytail holder. No open toes, no sandals, no crocs, no flipflops, no leather sole shoes. We loan all beginner equipment.
