PDX Fencing is a private club. Membership and participation is a privilege, not a right, and has obligations. PDX Fencing expects all members, guests, coaches, volunteers and staff to honor our Rules and Code of conduct. Traditions of a fencing salle d’arms have developed over centuries. They promote and encourage self respect, respect for others involved (including one’s opponent), self-discipline, good sportsmanship, and safety. These are the hallmarks of our club.

Respect for your opponent
