What You'll Get


Fencing was once commonly learned at an early age, which is why so many octogenarians still settle disputes with games of Rock, Paper, Épée. Celebrate civilized swordplay with today’s Groupon to Central California Fencing. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get two 90-minute foil fencing classes (a $50 value).
  • For $32, you get four 90-minute foil fencing classes (a $100 value).

Students at Central California Fencing lunge, parry, and appel under the trained eye of 20-year veteran and three-time U.S. National Champion Clinton Kershaw. The studio provides foils to swashbucklers-in-training and hides street clothes under complementary protective fencing gear, including masks, jackets, plumed hats, and gloves. Lessons cover a wide swath of sword-swinging fundamentals, imparting rules and terminology early on to help fledgling fencers acclimate to the sport. Footwork training and a focus on the foil's particular strengths keep pupils balanced and moving, and practice duels near lesson's end provide an opportunity to practice new skills such as thrusting and lightly slapping a rival with a glove. Classes run Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
