En Garde Fencing Club

WELCOME

MISSION STATEMENT

To improve the physical fitness, and mental wellness, of people from ages

8 to 80 through the sport of fencing.

 

Fencing increases your endurance, quickens your reflexes, improves hand-eye coordination, forces you to create strategies, make quick decisions, and have backup plans. These are all qualities of a good leader.

 

There are also some life lessons to learn from fencing: being polite, playing by the rules, being respectful of authority, admitting when you are wrong, and perseverance.

WHY FENCING?

It’s very exciting, and anyone can do it. You don’t have to be the biggest, strongest, or fastest person. You have to be the smartest.  

IS IT DANGEROUS?

It’s a non-violent sport. Full-contact is not allowed. The lightest touch on-target registers a point, so there’s no need to hit hard.

IS IT EXPENSIVE?

A starter gear set costs $175 (mask, jacket, glove, weapon, and bag). Think “investment” into a college scholarship.
