Getting started with fencing at Phoenix Falcons is easy! Find the section below that applies to you:
I or my child have never fenced before
For people ages 8 to adult who have never fenced before, we recommend starting with the 6-week beginner class. This class is integrated with our current skill development classes. Fencers 8-12 meet from 5-6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Fencers 13+ meet from 6pm-7pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Saturdays at 10am, we offer a mixed skill development class, followed by open bouting until 1pm. All sessions cover the basics of fencing. Loaner equipment is available so you don’t need to buy any gear to get started. Check the beginner class page for more information on the introductory club pricing.
I or my child have previous fencing experience
For fencers ages 8 to adult who have any previous fencing experience, we recommend coming to a current Skill Development class and/or open fencing. If you don’t have fencing gear, we have gear available to borrow. Fencers meet from on Mondays and Wednesdays, as listed above. On Saturdays at 10am, we offer a mixed skill development class, followed by open bouting until 1pm. Check the schedule for current class and open fencing times. Please contact us in advance to let us know you’ll be coming! After your visit, you can join the club as a member and attend unlimited sessions.
