Membership

Once you have completed your initial beginners course (or if you are already an accomplished fencer) you will be invited to become a member of the club. We currently have around 300 members including both social and competitive fencers. We pay particular attention to members who only recently started to fence and through on-going group training sessions we ensure that you learn and progress to the advanced stages of the sport. We are the only club in London to offer group lessons to advanced beginners and intermediate fencers. The sessions are structured and include warm up, footwork, bladework or tactical lesson and free fencing. (timetable)
