2019-2020 Fencing For Adults
All classes are at 15 Tai Lane (downstairs).
Private lessons are the most effective way to personalize your learning, allowing you to progress fastest and at your own pace.
Private lessons can often be worked around your schedule.
Included in your private lesson fees is the opportunity to fence in open bouting the Wednesday following your lesson(s). Although we learn most effectively in a one on one setting, it is helpful to fence with a variety of opponents.
Cost for new beginners is $20 for 30 minute lesson or $40 for a 1 hour lesson
Cost for lessons beyond beginner level is $30 for 30 minute lesson or $60 for 1 hour or $115 for two hours in a week
A $65 annual fee is due at the start of the season in August/September and/or at the start of your private lessons ($35 annual fee for current MSU students)

Do your own warm-up, stretching and footwork. This is straight up fencing time, not a class. If you will be joining this session, please arrive in time to give yourself enough time to warm-up before fencing and so that staff know you are coming. You may wish to arrange a fencing partner of your own age/skill level ahead of time.
Fencers coming from out of town are welcome with a national membership - please email ahead of time so that we know you are coming.
USFA membership is required.
