The Fairfield Avenue School of Fencing is dedicated to training fencers in a supportive and respectful surrounding.

We encourage our students to achieve the highest level of success that they desire.

We aid our fencers in defining and redefining their goals during their evolution.

We believe that a good fencing club’s duty, among others, is to provide a challenging athletic atmosphere in a physically and emotionally safe environment.

We’re not just teaching fencing. We are teaching sportsmanship, caring, problem solving, stress management, the development of intuition and self esteem.

All equipment is supplied free. Call us to schedule a private lesson or just drop in for our Junior Program.
