My boys (twins age 9) did a week of fencing summer camp and loved it! The instructors were patient and intelligent in the way that they guided a high-energy group of kids with time for fencing, play (that worked on other coordination skills), and down time so they weren't completely frazzled by the end of a long day. I also really appreciated the coaches awareness of building character, self-control, and respect through the whole experience. We will definitely be coming back for regular lessons!

Poking people? Check. Stabby stabby? Check. Running around with pointy objects? Check. This place has it all from youth, adults, and veterans. If you're looking to enclose your 2 acre back lawn with chain link, this is not the place to go. But if you want diverse training, unique fitness options, and meeting great people, start at Forge Fencing Academy and Club. Never tried fencing before? It doesn't matter! This club has classes for everyone! Beginner classes, great coaches, equipment for everyone, competitive options, MTV's Dan Cortese (ok, maybe not that), but it's a solid place to start, continue and pursue your Olympic fencing dreams!

The actual fencing pistes and floor are great, but very limited area for fencers gear during a competition.

My son started fencing at Forge Fencing last year as a beginner, and has simply loved it. The coaches are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate about helping people at all levels enjoy fencing.
