Due to a surge in interest in fencing, our ability to take on new students during our Friday class is limited. Please sign up on our waitlist and you will be contacted the moment a spot opens up in an upcoming class.

Beginner (Introductory) Class
You've watched the flashing blades in Zorro.... the dashing duels in The Princess Bride... now try it yourself! Learn the science and art of fencing in just eight short weeks with the Omaha Fencing Club. Our introductory course will teach you the basics of attacking, defending, and scoring hits with a fencing blade.
Our next round of beginner's classes start Friday, March 22nd at Montclair from 6 - 7pm. The Adult Beginner class starts on Wednesday, March 20th at Montclair from 8 - 9pm. 
This introductory 8-week course costs just $50.
All safety equipment is provided by Omaha Fencing Club. We only ask that students dress out in workout clothing and non-marking gym shoes. Open-toed shoes are not allowed. Track or sweat pants are recommended, but shorts will be allowed. We encourage you to wear a t-shirt, as you will be perspiring during class.

All participants must be registered members with U.S. Fencing (our national governing body). The lowest membership is the "Access" membership, which is $29 (additional to class fee) annually with the year starting anew on August 1st.

Students must be age 10 or older to participate.

U.S. Fencing registration can be completed at US Fencing Member Signup. Select Access membership for the $29 option.
Please bring proof of membership on the first day of class, or e-mail us at info@omahafencingclub.org with your membership number if you did not enter the membership number into our registration page. Returning members should renew their membership if registered prior to April 1st, 2023.
Cash, check, PayPal or credit card on-site accepted for class fees.
Class starts at 6 pm on Friday, 8pm for Adult Beginner on Wednesday. Please arrive for the first class around 30 minutes early so that registration and payment can be taken care of swiftly. We will also fit out students for gear during this time before class. Later weeks, we recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before class start to find gear and to be prepared for class.
Most importantly, have fun! Our coaching staff is eager to teach everyone the fantastic sport of fencing. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask us in person or via e-mail.
