Small group instruction is the most common type of instruction for learning the basic fencing moves.

New eight week classes begin in fall, winter and spring at Mid-South. If you have just missed the start of a class, please contact the club to register. Missed classes are easy to make up, adult classes are relaxed and casual. Fencing is a highly adaptable sport. Just let the instructor know if you have limitations you think we should be aware of.

Adult classes are casual and fun, allowing slow integration into our mainstream practices. Many adults also choose individual instruction at flexible hours to help build confidence. Everything can be adapted, including intensity level.
