We offer four programs to our fencers :

Fencing Introduction Month includes access to all our zoom classes for you to discover the joy of fencing. 

Zoom only which includes access to all the zoom classes: workout, footwork, and drilling for epee and saber. This program is recommended for beginners. They can explore both weapons.

Team fencers make more of a time commitment and usually, they have already narrowed their focus to a specific weapon and plan on competing in tournaments. Team fencers are expected to attend all the instructor-led classes on zoom, two one hour instructor-led at the salle, and register to one open fencing pod.  

Adult Open Fencing Pod is for adults to fence at our salle. After registering, contact the coach or staff in charge of the pod of your choice through the TFA team app.
