Rochester Fencing Club

Since opening in 1981, Rochester Fencing Club has produced two world-champion fencers and a slew of prodigious Olympian qualifiers, including five members on the 1996 team, four on the 2000 team, and one on the 2008 team. Two of those Olympians, sisters Iris and Felicia Zimmermann, have returned to the facilities as co-owners and instructors. Iris’s fencing aptitude has earned her a position as the president of the Stanford Fencing Association, while Felicia’s fencing prowess—she was the first and only woman to win the NCAA championship in both foil and épée—remains unrivaled despite rumors that rhinoceroses will now be allowed to compete. Continuing the club’s tradition of excellence, the staff cultivates talent among young fencers in summer camps and classes of all levels. Two-hour birthday parties teach kids fencing basics, followed by an hour of frenzied birthday-cake consumption and duels with piñatas.

Customer Reviews

The checkin was a little strange, as the front counter person was complaining about a customer, so it was a bit unwelcoming, but the class itself was fun and worth it.

Make sure you go to the new location - my GPS got confused and lead me to the old address. It was great fun! The time went by so fast, they are great teachers! Dress in layers, you will get warm. Excellent time!
