Welcome to Southwest Florida Fencing Academy

coach-banner.jpgFence with courage, win with honor, lose with dignity. This is our creed.

"It is a chess match moving at 90 miles an hour", says Coach Charlie. "Somebody is standing in front of you with a long pointy piece of steel they are trying to drive into your body. You have to stop them. At the same time, you are trying to inflict the same exact move on them."

 

Our Creed

Fence with courage. Win with honor. Lose with dignity. This is our creed.

Our Fencing Family

Our fencing family is important to us. We are here for you, to help you learn, to help you grow.

Cross Weapon

We provide our end-users a peace of mind that they can fence either foil, epee, sabre... or all three!

User Friendly

Whether you want to fence recreationally or competitively, we have a plan for everyone.

Coaches

Our coaches will teach you to be responsive to the challengers in front of you. Progress = Desire+Determination+Dedication.

Beginning Fencer's Classes

Have you ever thought what it would be like to wield a blade? Well you are in the right place! Our beginners classes will give you all the skills you need to be a master swordsman. 

Schedule

Our club is open 6 days a week. No matter what your schedule, you can find a time to fence that fits even the most rigorous schedules.

Your Gear

The club will provide a list of gear for beginners. Most fencers decide to start building their arsenal after the beginners class.
