Midwest Fencing Academy has been serving the Chicagoland community for over 10 years. Our experience comes from National, NCAA, and Olympic champions. We train our members into becoming world known athletes.
The Olympic sport of fencing demands a blend of tactical and strategic thought and a physical execution of those decisions. This has led many to describe the sport as "physical chess." Fencing also teaches balance and discipline and even more than this, it's fun! This class is for those new to fencing or those who would like to work on the basic skills. It will cover basic rules, etiquette, basic footwork, attacks, and defenses. Each class will consist of warm-up time, footwork time, group lesson and bouting. All equipment is provided.
