Training

Fencing is a great way to keep fit, improve balance and coordination and sharpen your mind.

Fencers 7 years and up are welcome and remember you’re never too old to learn, with world veteran competitions catering for fencers into their 70s and beyond. Our club specialises in epee (the decedent of the dueling sword). We also offer school programs and run small group intensive coaching sessions and private lessons.

No fencing experience? No problem, you are welcome to join the club at any time. Our coaches can teach you the basics, and our regular club members will soon have you up and fencing. Simply email the club if you are interested and we can get you fencing.

We run three sessions per week – Saturdays aimed at our junior members, Monday and Thursday nights for our adults

Saturday fencing classes – epee coaching 
Our junior classes running every Saturday (during school terms).
7–9 years classes 9–10am
10–13 years classes 10–11am

Monday night training – foil and epee coaching
Monday night training runs from 7.45–9.30pm.

Thursday night Fight Club
Thursday nights we open the club for anyone to come and fence.

What will I need to fence with the club?
You will not require any special equipment to start, the club has everything for members to use.

Equipment for members
Club members will be able to use club fencing gear when they start fencing with the club. It is expected that you will buy your own kit by the end of the first year of fencing with the club. The club places orders throughout the year and passes on the equipment at close to cost price for members.

What you should bring to training and how do we train?
1. Comfortable training shoes – cross trainers are fine.
2. Long track pants (even in summer) to give your legs some protection.
4. Water and a towel.
Training comprises warm up exercises, footwork and blade drills and bouting. Electric fencing is available at all sessions.
