Hub City Fencing Academy
Since 2010, the scene at Hub City Fencing Academy has been the same. An instructor gives the signal and students leap into action, foils and sabers flashing as they lunge and parry. Head Coach Rich Beischer and his team of decorated coaches – most competed at the D-I collegiate level – lead lessons and training camps for all levels of fencer, including kids, active competitors, and those who just want to press elevator buttons with more panache. The instructors make it their goal to not only teach the physical techniques of fencing, but also the discipline and maturity that come from committing to a sport. Parents can get their children started in the healthy, mind-sharpening sport at a young age through the private Mommy (or Daddy) & Me lessons, which teach duelists up to age 7 basic skills alongside a participating parent.
