Where & When





Fencing Classes at The Olde Town Fencing Club

Beginner Classes

We teach classes through the Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities. Classes meet one night a week for eight weeks. There are four sessions a year. The Youth class is for ages 10-15; the Adult class is for anyone aged 16 and up.

Register through Alexandria RPCA's webtrac site.. For insurance purposes, students are required to sign up for a non-competitive membership in USFA Fencing.

Classes are held from 7:00 to 8:00 PM Mondays and Wednesdays; click on link at top of page to find out when the next session starts.

We supply masks, jackets, and foils. Students should wear athletic shoes with non-marking soles and bring a glove. Students in the class do not pay club membership dues.

Information for the Beginners Class is here in PDF form.

Competitive Fencers

Private lessons are available from our head coach, former Olympic fencer Jun Liang-Smith.


Group Sabre lessons are 7:00 on Wednesdays with Jim McGillivray.
