Private lessons are an essential part of learning the art of fencing and are the best method of fencing training. In a private lesson, the fencer learns and masters specific techniques and builds a foundation for skillful fencing.

That’s why more advanced programs contain several private lessons in a month. Moreover, before some critical competitions many fencers take additional private lessons on top what their program already includes.

Private Fencing Lessons Purpose

Private fencing lessons are for fencers at any level; however, the higher the fencer’s ability, the more private lessons he or she should take. A private lesson is completely tailored to the fencer’s skills and needs.

The fencer utilizes and further masters what is learned in the private lesson during subsequent group lessons or open fencing.

Our programs are designed such that we recommend a minimum amount of private lessons per skill level.

Often, when the fencer is close to competition time, he/she will want additional private lessons on top of what the program suggests, and TFA will work with the fencer to make that happen.


Private lessons are scheduled at the beginning of the season, and a time and day is assigned to a fencer.  

To participate in the private lesson the fencer should come at least 15 minutes before the start to warm up.

Only club members can take private lessons with our coaches.

Lessons last 20 minutes.
