Napa Valley Fencing Academy
Our classes are designed for beginning and intermediate fencers ages seven and up. No experience is required. You will learn everything you need to know to enjoy this Olympic sport. All standard fencing gear is provided. Coaching is available in all three fencing weapons; foil, epee, and sabre.
The Club Pass provides a month of unlimited fencing. Classes meet Wednesdays 4-5 pm and Saturdays from 9 am - 11 am with an extra half an hour of open fencing after every class.
Our Sunday class includes a three hour open session that starts off with conditioning, footwork, and drills, followed by open fencing with coaching in all three fencing weapons. Electric strips available and all standard gear provided. *Registration available on line through the Napa Recreation Department.
These tournaments take place approximately every six weeks during Club Hours on Sunday. These events are designed to help our fencers gain more competitive experience.
Private fencing lessons are a great way to take your fencing to the next level. This one-on-one format allows students to focus on developing their individual strengths in the weapon of their choice. Lessons may be scheduled before class or during club hours. Please contact your instructor to arrange your lesson schedule.
Small Group Instruction - New!
We are excited to be able to offer additional small group instruction for students on Tuesdays and Friday at 4 pm. This is a great option for those who have scheduling challenges with the Wednesday/Sunday Club Schedule. It is also a great option when the regular program classes are full.
Please contact us for more information.
