Doors open at 9am, group classes begin at 9:30am, check the timetable on the Group Classes page for class details. Typically, classes include warm-up, physical conditioning, footwork and group drills, followed by fencing on the electric pistes.
Visitors are welcome; there is a $20 visitor fee. All visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association. Club equipment is available for use if required.
During school terms, we have classes in sabre for ages 7+, and epee for ages 11+. Individual lessons and free-bouting practice can generally take place alongside classes.
Saturdays are our busiest session, so please note we can only accommodate new beginners during school holidays and the first 2 weeks of term. After this, you can still join a beginner class at one of the other training sessions, then join a Saturday group once you have mastered the basics.
