Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who can learn to fence at Four Corners Fencing Club?

    • Almost anyone.  If you have the ability to hold a weapon, you can come and learn.  We accept all ages, children to seniors, provided you have the strength to manipulate the blade, which is why we suggest a lower limit of 10 years old.

  • Does the club provide gear?​

    • Yes, we have a good selection of gear for new fencers to use.​

  • How much does it cost?​

    • It is free to visit the club and see if you are interested.  There is a one-time $30 initiation fee for new members which includes a club patch.  You will also need to join our governing national association which is USA Fencing.  Their annual memberships start at $29.  For new students, we offer an 8-week Beginners Course for a minimal fee.  If you are new to fencing, it is required that you complete this class before continuing to fence at the club.

  • Who can I bring with me?

    • You can bring anyone, including friends and family to learn or just watch.​

  • What should I wear?​

    • If you are a new fencer, wear athletic shoes (court shoes if you have them), long stretchable pants, and a t-shirt.​

  • Is it safe?​

    • Yes.  Fencing is relatively safe, especially for a combat sport.  The equipment is designed to be safe.  ​Of course, you may suffer the occassional bruise or sports injuries common to all athletic sports, but serious injuries are a rare occurrence.
