Lynchburg Fencing Center currently offers beginner fencing classes for youth ages 7 to 12 and adults, ages 13 and over. Equipment rental is included in all class prices.
Beginner Fencing: Students are introduced to all of the basics of fencing, including terminology, movement, defense and basic attacks, as well as safety. Because of the large amount of information, most beginners take the introductory class two or three times.
Class Fees: A 6-week session of classes costs $125. Please bring your payment method (cash, check, or credit/debit card), and you will be asked to fill out the paper registration form.
Intermediate Fencing: Intermediate level class is for those who have a solid understanding of the basics of movement and technique by completing the introductory / beginner course or who have had previous fencing experience. Students will explore tactics and strategy, as well as fine-tuning techniques and focusing on physical conditioning for competition.
Class Fees: A 6-week session of classes costs $140. Please bring your payment method (cash, check, or credit/debit card), and you will be asked to fill out the paper registration form.

What You Need to Bring to Class LFC has equipment for rent including, uniforms, gloves, masks, and weapons. The rental fee is included in your class fee when you sign up.
When you show up for your first day of class, you will need to wear long pants (warm-up pants or thick sweat pants are ideal), athletic shoes, and a comfortable t-shirt (cotton is best, but some under-armor style base layer shirts work just as well).
The United States Fencing Association requires participants at member clubs, such as Lynchburg Fencing Center, to also be members of the United States Fencing. There are varying levels of membership depending on the level of involvement in the sport, but at least a “non-competitive” level membership is required for classes, private lessons, or camps at LFC.
