Join the Number One Sport Fencing Club in Berkeley
Sign up for Sport Fencing at the Best Sports Fencing Club—the Sport Fencing Center
Join an exhilarating fencing club that combines family fun with a sophisticated historical art form. Sport Fencing has a rich, gallant history, with roots in Egypt and parts of Europe, including Spain and France. Originally designed to be used with armor for battling and self-protection, it was re-created as a sport during the Renaissance Era. Once exclusively popular with aristocracy, Sport Fencing has become a trendy sport that instills fundamental life-improving characteristics in participants, such as balance, strength, coordination, chivalry, agility, mobility, tactical thinking skills, self-confidence, gamesmanship, mutual respect, and many other important merits.
At the Sport Fencing Club in Berkeley, highly-skilled instructors teach the respected, historical sport to family members of all ages, at all skill levels. Beginning students learn basics, such as proper stance, footwork, blade work, tactics, and introduction to foil fencing. Children are taught beginning Swashbuckling, a program designed to bring enjoyment to younger fencers, while learning important traits such as cooperation, sportsmanship, and motor skills. Beginner classes are taught in a non-competitive environment, where new positions, such as en guard, advance, retreat, lunge, and advance lunge fundamentals are learned.
Beginner Sport Fencing courses can be taught to all ages. Intermediate, advanced and competitive Sport Fencing programs provide opportunities for match competition, Scout Fencing and other advanced Sport Fencing opportunities. In advanced Sport Fencing, progressive foot and bladework, proper posture and advanced techniques are taught, reinforcing the age-old elegance and poise of original Sport Fencing. A competitive Sports Fencing club is ideal for dedicated Sport Fencing athletes, ages 8 and above, who want to participate in Sport Fencing at local, regional, national, and collegiate levels. Students will learn proper footwork, partner drills, bouting, conditioning, and other skills. The Sport Fencing club conducts individual lessons, fencing camps, workshops, party and corporate events, home school, and matches, to promote fun, family-oriented Sport Fencing.
