What is “Fight Club”?

Fight club is a weekly practice for all members of the club. There is no instruction, but rather a chance to gain experience fencing other member and peers. Fight club is an excellent way to prepare for competitions and is highly encouraged by our coaches.

Is fencing just a boys sport or can anyone fence?

Anyone can learn to fence! Both men and women from to youth to seniors are learning to fence. It’s a great way to get in shape and stay in shape.

Does it hurt?

Not if done properly. Even if executed with appreciable energy, a good, clean fencing attack hurts no more than a tap on the shoulder. Proper warm up and stretching before fencing will minimize these occurrences. As with any sport or physical activity there is always a risk of injury. Common sense precautions and realistic training goals are the best prevention.

What equipment do I need to start fencing?

All you need to start fencing is athletic pants and shoes, a t-shirt, a bottle of water…AND a desire to strike blades with another! All fencing equipment is provided free of charge for the first 2 months at the Coastside Academy in San Francisco.
