Fencing is the sport of sword fighting. Facing a single opponent, officiated by a referee, you have two goals: hit, and don’t get hit.
Fencing is a lifelong sport, and Wildcat Fencing Club is committed to excellence in youth and long-term development. We teach fencers at all different levels and ages, from the 8-year-old picking up her first real sword, to the retiree who never forgot his favorite swashbuckling movie. We train high-schoolers working to captain their high school teams and collegiate fencers who travel the country for regional and national championships. Our instructors are experienced not only as coaches, but as fencers, athletes, and teammates.
There is no one perfect way to fence; instead, every fencer develops their own unique skill set. Your personal style may be shaped not only by your physical and technical ability, but by your own individual sense of tactics, strategy, and daring. Different fencers will choose different solutions to the same problem, and each new opponent presents new problems to solve. Therefore, while it’s important that everyone in the program develops the same strong fundamentals, what will ultimately make you successful as a fencer is whatever makes you… You.
