Foil the competition with today's Groupon: for $24, you get the Taste of Fencing class at Gryphon Fencing and Fitness Studio (a $49 value) in Placentia. With more than 70 years of combined fencing and coaching experience, Gryphon’s skilled instructors strive to develop and instill strength, intelligence, and confidence in each of their fencing students.

The Taste of Fencing course is a condensed, three-hour class in which participants will learn the history and etiquette of modern sports fencing, basic footwork, attacks, and defenses. After students have perfected the ways of the mesh-faced ninja, they will battle to their pretend deaths in an exciting competition using Olympic-style electronic scoring gear. Offered the first and third Saturday and Sunday of every month, from 1 p.m.–4 p.m., this class provides a fun and safe introduction to the sport of fencing. Class size is limited, so call ahead to make reservations.

Gryphon Fitness Studio

On the same expanse of cork-padded floor at Gryphon Fitness Studio, feet pivot into tango turns, sabers flash and meet with a clang, and bodies twirl in midair, suspended from shining hoops. Of course, not all of this takes place at the same time. The space is reserved to let instructors, including a former fencing state champion and Zumba enthusiasts, share their various passions. Though their specialties span a range that includes dance, fitness, aerial arts, and three types of swordplay, they all focus on giving each student individual attention and consideration. Rather than pushing their guests toward competition or training them not to blink in progressively brighter spotlights, they devise routines to challenge students at their preferred pace. During day camps for children, the instructors bask in a chorus of happy young voices as they explain the basics of kung fu, fencing, and acrobatics.
