Salem Fencing Club
Under the high ceilings of a warehouse dating back to the 1970s, the Salem Fencing Club team leads training sessions and competitions for its members and guests. A nonprofit organization, Salem Fencing Club aims to share the honor, chivalry, and respect integral to this historic sport with its community. To that end, they provide classes for various skill levels and organize children's day camps, filling them with lessons, crafts, games, and campfires, during which students are trained to fight the urge to toast marshmallows on their épées. Though the facility is decades old, the sparring space has been updated to include virtual scoring and overhead reel-less systems.
