Choose From Three Options

  • $20 for two beginners’ fencing classes (a $40 value)
  • $35 for four beginners’ fencing classes (an $80 value)
  • $199 for one week of fencing summer camp (a $400 value)

Skillful fencing depends on a coordination of the limbs, a skill that students learn in beginners’ classes. Instructors focus on the development of basic footwork, slowly pairing it with simple bladework used for offense, defense, and counter-offense. The skills taught apply to both the foil and épée styles of blades, and can be taught to students aged 6 and older.

Alternatively, summer camps provide kids aged 9–18 with instruction from college-age competitors who construct fun activities designed to improve footwork, teach sportsmanship, or master important techniques and tactics. The camp goes all day, so participants should bring their lunch with them. Richmond Fencing Club provides all uniforms and equipment, and hosts both classes and summer camps in their air-conditioned fencing facility.

Richmond Fencing Club

Richmond Fencing Club has molded budding fencers since JFK was president and humankind had just turned its eyes to the moon. Today, three instructors—each with their own titles from the Virginia Division Championships—helm the educational efforts, overseeing a program that educates students as young as 6 in the foot- and bladework required to wield a fencing foil competitively.

They teach in a no-nonsense facility, its cinderblock walls decorated only with pegs to hang fencing equipment, its smooth hardwood floors interrupted only by well-worn fencing lanes. The fencing-dedicated space keeps elaborately uniformed students cool with central air conditioning instead of replacing helmets with ice buckets like lesser establishments.

Good fun and exercise.

The school recommended doing the Groupon four-class deal before starting the 10-class beginner's course -- and they're right. It's the perfect way to get indoctrinated into the sport at an incredibly low price. The instructor was engaging and made the entire class comfortable with getting up to speed quickly.
