I had such a great time at the taste of fencing event yesterday. There was a warmup, some history of the sport and explanations about the types of swords. Then we were on to the fencing. Great instructions, plenty of time to practice, and so much fun!

Gryphon Studio is an excellent place to experiment and/or train in fencing! I've been going with my sibling for a few weeks now and we have both been given an abundancy of attention and more importantly, a challenging experience. After trying it out, we are even considering joining as long term fencers!(And this is coming from someone who has practiced a fair amount of martial arts in the past, so I'm not just saying it on a whim) Our instructor (I believe her name is 'Ati') was helpful & tough, while our fellow peers were really friendly and supportive as well. Age groups range from middle school to teens to adults, so you'll definitely be able to find a partner if you choose to try it out on your own.

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable! Lots of equipment and open space to practice Archery and Fencing. Will go again for both. Great for beginners and those looking to improve.

What You'll Get

A married couple's first dance as man and wife should be refined and flawless, much like an engagement diamond or a Blu-ray copy of Porky's. Embark on a fancy-footed adventure with today's Groupon: for $17, you get four Argentine tango lessons at Gryphon Fencing and Fitness Studio in Placentia (up to a $50 value).

The dance instructors at Gryphon instill feet of all experience levels with tangoing tips that cultivate confidence and grace. A typical Saturday session commences with 30 minutes of stretching to heat up muscles, preventing awkward instances of freezing in the middle of deep dips. Dancers then absorb an hour of introductory instruction, soaking in step basics to perfect balance and coordination. More adept movers can progress into an additional 30 minutes of intermediate to advanced dips and twirls. With the imprint of two-stepping choreography still pressed freshly into their minds, dancers can traipse gracefully across the expansive hardwood dance floor in a one-hour practice session immediately after class. Students are not obliged to linger past the initial one-hour beginners' session.

Tango classes may be individually enjoyed, or a second Groupon can usher in future spouses to prepare for spotlight dances. Full classes are offered on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and novices may congregate in the beginners-only class on Sundays.

About 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.
