A Chat with Schoolhouse Fencing
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Schoolhouse Fencing has been training students for 10 years in the Salt Lake area. Students are taught to use their mental strategies as well as their physical abilities.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Recommended age to begin fencing would be 8-12 years old. We take students as young as 6 and many adults pick up the sport later in life. Boys and girls are welcome. It can be a great family activity.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Coach Kenny is an mechanical engineer by trade who started fencing while still in college. When he married Jenni, she asked if he’d rather teach and coach fencing full-time or be an engineer. He chose fencing and Schoolhouse Fencing began.
What do you love most about your job?
We love watching the students grow, mature, and take accountability for their actions. We teach students to be graceful when they win and respectful when they lose. We are proud of our students who see personal improvement in their skills and push themselves to keep learning.
