Be sure to schedule your lessons in advance using our scheduler. Check the calendar for openings and closings, as well as locations.


Fencing is best learned in a combination of group and individualized lessons. In a group setting, fencers learn the fundamental skills that are not easily taught in a private lesson. Distance skills, advanced footwork, strategic thinking, and safety knowhow are some of the vital competencies that all fencers need.

While private lessons are excellent for fine-tuning technique, this class will fast-track athletes into open bouting, advanced training, and beyond.

Games, technical skills, safety, and fun awaits!

As part of their training program, fencers need to practice learned skills and keep in shape. These fencers will participate in bouts against each other and any other willing, and appropriately equipped, person. In order to use a facility, the fencers must pay what is called a “Floor Fee.” This allows them access to the strips, so they can work with their partner(s) to hone their skills and adapt to different fencing techniques.

Forte will permit 10 fencers to attend each Open Fencing session. Each session will be limited to a single weapon and will have 50 minutes to fence. 

You MUST sign up using the Lesson Scheduler to receive your admission ticket for Open Fencing.

Valid for 1 month from purchase
$10 cash/check at club
