St. Louis Fencing CLUB
We teach both Foil & Epee styles of fencing and welcome all skill levels to our fencing club. Do you need to know the difference? See the videos below or contact us
for more information.
The foil is the most commonly used weapon in competition. Like épée, points are only scored by contact with the tip, which, in electrically scored tournaments, is capped with a spring-loaded button to signal a touch.
Epee is the largest and heaviest of the three weapons used in the sport of fencing. The modern épée derives from the 19th-century épée de combat, a weapon which itself derives from the French small sword.
We let our members speak for themselves – please see our testimonials below to learn more about our what our members experience at our fencing club.
Phenomenal club – Conveniently located, incredible amenities, and truly personalized experience. The Coach, Abram, is very friendly and knowledgeable. There are 4 working strips in the club, and the club devotes certain times to every weapon. Full size kitchen, filtered water and various other refreshments are provided. Armory services second to none. Can’t say enough nice things about STL Fencing Club, keep up the great work!
I came here to watch my little brother fence and I ended up fencing myself! Tran invited me to try fencing because I was there, and taught me individually the basics of fencing, how to hold the sword and different moves, in 30 minutes to get me caught up with the beginner class. Then I got to fence other students, including my brother :)))
The teachers here are fantastic. They notice when students perform a move well and identify when there’s a skill they should work on and address the students individually. The teachers will pause a match to teach something and let the student practice a move on them before continuing the match.
If you wanted to try fencing ever, STL Fencing makes it easy to start. Tran and the other instructors make fencing accessible and fun. This place is inclusive, knowledgable, organized, and friendly.
I joined this club on a whim after never fencing before in my life, and it has easily become my favorite hobby. I’m always looking forward to the next class and learning new techniques and improving as much as I can. The coaches are all incredibly knowledgeable, respectful, and skilled.
Highly recommend STL Fencing Club👌
My kid is new to the sport and absolutely feels very welcomed here. The coaches are amazing and the other fencers are very friendly and are eager to help eachother out with learning new/different things.
Very positive environment in all.
The coaches are also out there with thier students at tournaments competing at times.
After a week my kid said this is where they belong.
The St. Louis Fencing Club welcomes all ages and skill levels to come and train with us at our state of the art facility.
