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.

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.
