Beginner Classes

The All-American Fencing Academy provides Beginner Fencing classes for new students with no fencing experience and/or students that have fenced before and need a refresher. The Beginner Fencing class provides instruction on the history of fencing, basic foot work and blade work.

Beginner classes always start during the first week of the month.  Classes are 1 hour long and meet one day a week.  All equipment is provided.  We do not pro-rate for missed classes, but please talk to your coach if you will miss your class, there may be an opportunity to attend a make-up class.

How to dress:  Dress like you are going for a run outside.  Shorts and short sleeve shirts are good for spring, summer, and fall seasons.  Warm up pants and short sleeve shirts are good for the winter.  You may also consider bringing a change of shirt to wear on the way home.  Wear sneakers; avoid slippers and crocs.

We also encourage potential fencers to try the Downtown Fayetteville Fourth Friday Walk-In Classes prior to the class, but not required.

ENROLLMENT AND PAYMENT

It is helpful to contact us if you are joining a beginner class so we know who to expect, but it’s ok if you just show up.  We will provide you with all the forms required on the first day of class.  We take cash, check, and credit cards.  However, if you’d like to download the registration form and pay before hand you may do so here:
