Unleash the Zorro in your child by signing up with the San Francisco Fencers' Club (SFFC), a fencing club started by parents who wanted their kids to practice the sport of fencing in a fun and safe environment. In order for each fencer to reach their full potential, experienced coaches work with each student to develop physical skills and techniques, as well as mental strength.
Fencing classes are offered during afterschool hours every day of the week except Sundays. Kids ages 5 and up can enroll in all levels of fencing classes. Beginner and intermediate students learn techniques of foil fencing; advanced students are taught tactics and strategies to prepare for local and national competitions. Intermediate Sabre classes are open to girls ages 7 and up. Saber equipment is required and some fencing experience is preferred. SFFC also offers beginner Sabre classes for boys and girls ages 15 and up. Call SFFC for more information, including fees.
SFFC offers beginner and intermediate fencing camps during the summer and school breaks.
