Welcome to NC!

New to the area and looking for a club home?

What are folks saying?


Joining the club was one of the first things we did when we moved back to Durham a few years ago so our son could continue fencing. We are so grateful that it has been a welcoming community that has consistently (even through the pandemic!) provided a safe environment for him for fitness, friendship, and mentorship.

Through fencing, our kid has discovered her voice, her resilience, her power, her community, and her identity. (And winning a ton of medals has been awesome too!)

When I moved to NC four years ago, I visited all of the local epee-friendly clubs. The camaraderie and teamwork at Forge made me choose it as my new club. The excellent coaching and competitive bouting kept me there. My fencing has improved greatly with the help of Forge’s staff and my teammates, leading me to many Top 8 finishes at tournaments. Thank you, Forge!
