Virginia Academy of Fencing

At the Virginia Academy of Fencing, students learn the centuries-old art of fencing in a decidedly modern-day setting. The facility’s 13,000-square-foot space features amenities such as a padded warm-up area, a bouting video-replay system, and 12 full-time electric strips with overhead reel systems, as well as a decorated area for spectators or maidens in distress.

Seven days a week, expert instructors teach both Olympic Sport Fencing and Historical Swordsmanship to classes of students. Olympic Sport Fencing includes foil, épée, and sabre instruction, while Historical Swordsmanship teaches the use of either a rapier or a two-handed sword. The academy’s newest class, stage-combat fencing, combines traditional fencing techniques with the exciting, dramatic style of swashbuckling used in Hollywood movies and closed-door congressional hearings. Along with providing students with an opportunity to learn a new and unique sport, the academy’s classes help students improve their strength, balance, coordination, and cardio fitness.
