We are Fortune Fencing

Fencing is a modern and athletic sport. The movement is so fast the touches are scored electrically - a lot more like Star Wars than Zorro.

Fencing is a fast and athletic sport, a far cry from the choreographed fights you see in the movies or on the stage. Instead of swinging from a chandelier or leaping from balconies, you will see two fencers performing an intense pas de deux on a 6-feet by 44-feet strip.

Fencing is a wonderful sport for all ages. Beginning fencers should be at least seven years old, but fencing isn't just a youth sport at Fortune Fencing there are adult classes for veteran fencers as well as adult recreational fencers.
3What is proper clothing to wear to a class?
New students should wear a T-shirt, long pants like sweat pants or athletic warm-ups, and lace up athletic shoes. Please bring a water bottle. For health reasons fencers will be required to own their own fencing uniforms. The minimum necessary equipment is a fencing mask, fencing glove, jacket and under arm protector.
