In recent years, swordplay has become more popular due to its status as an Olympic sport and the recent rise in old-timey crimes. Prepare for a duel with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three Introduction to Fencing classes at Red Rock Fencing Center (a $75 value).

The sword wielders of Red Rock Fencing Center impart their knowledge of swordplay to hopeful musketeers through a series of Introduction to Fencing classes. Combatants can etch their initials into the wall with three different blades, including the foil, the épée, and the saber, during the trio of 90-minute courses. While training, youth and adults alike learn from Olympic-class instructors on FIE-approved floors sporting Sport-Flex rubber, which aims to reduce or eliminate stress on joints and leg muscles. The studio's mirrored walls facilitate self-observation while students hone their form and practice debonair poses. Although Red Rock provides fencing equipment, students should prepare for movement by bringing sneakers, sweatpants, and a water bottle. Introductory classes are held on Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Red Rock Fencing Center

Director of Red Rock Fencing Center Frank Van Dyke is a longtime expert when it comes to the sport, with more than 30 years as a fencer, coach, and referee. He trained under one Olympian and three Olympic coaches before becoming a certified member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association and ascending to the board of the United Fencing Federation. The energetic Van Dyke does not rest on his laurels, competing to maintain world-class A-rated abilities with an épée, which crowns his talent with foil and sabre. In both instruction and competition, he draws techniques from German, Russian, Chinese and American Olympic schools, and specializes in strip and team tactics.

The fencing center embodies both Van Dyke's zeal for excellence and dedication to his community. Olympic and World Cup instructors teach skills in all three weapons to competitive and amateur students, who parry across custom flooring designed to absorb the shocks to joints and muscles caused by forceful lunges and sudden NASA landings. Every Saturday, the team hosts a public tournament for anyone who contributes to its accompanying potluck, and heads beyond the center to work with boy scouts and schoolchildren.
