Learn to Fence in 8 weeks*
Youth (ages 7-12) 
Adults (ages 13+)
*Prerequisite to BFC Beginner Membership

Our Learn to Fence course is  the novice fencer's first BFC fencing experience. No prior knowledge is required. This is an eight-week session of weekly group classes that meets for an hour, once a week. Tuition of $185 includes the purchase of your own fencing glove and free use of all other equipment required for the class.

Fencers with little or no fencing experience will have the opportunity to work with patient, experienced instructors to learn the fundamentals of foil fencing.  Each day will include games to improve athletic conditioning and strategic thinking, as well as group instruction and drilling to learn fencing skills and concepts.  Wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes; bring a water bottle.

NOTE:  If we are not currently offering a Learn to Fence Session at time convenient to you or for your age group, you can still sign up for four 30-minute private sessions with one of our professional coaches at a time and day convenient for you. Contact us for additional information.
