Half Price Introductory Lesson
If you have never tried fencing and want to see what it's about, sign up for a half price introductory lesson with one of our coaches, pay online and book your slot. You can contact us to find out more.
Once you've tried fencing and want to carry on with the sport, then purchase a beginner package of four individual lessons, and one of our coaches will teach you the basics of foil fencing. All beginners start with foil and move onto the other weapons later if they choose. Once you have completed your beginner course, or if you are an experienced fencer that would like to fence for CFA, then become a club member.
