Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

Fencing club meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7pm-9pm. Practice breaks down as follows: Mondays are for non-competitive practice, with half of the practice spent working on the basics of fencing, and the other half open fencing. Wednesdays are for competitive practice, where the entire time is spent working on more advanced techniques and fencing methods. Fridays are open bouting, however, emphasis is put on practicing bouting in tournament style.

Description of Special Events

We host a few tournaments during the year. One in the spring, one in the winter, and another in the fall. More details will be posted as final dates are decided on.
