Cutting-edge training.

We specialize in the Olympic sport of fencing, are athlete-centered and welcoming to folks near and far to recreate, train and compete at our new facility in Durham, NC.

Find your people.

Welcome to our Club

Fencers are everywhere! Once you connect with this sport, it can become captivating. From ages 7 to 80+ years of age, folks train, compete and celebrate with us from all over the United States. Once you find your sport, you need a community to help you grow or sustain your skills. Highly adaptable fencers are part of our club and compete at all levels of competition. We do have more than a few things in common though…

Step by step athlete and team development.
