The Anchorage Fencing Club receives a discount of as much as 20% on fencing equipment and clothing ordered from Absolute Fencing Gear when the order is placed through the club. The savings to our members can be substantial.
The discounts we receive depend upon the brand of the equipment you order, with the highest discounts applied to the Absolute labels.
Anyone interested in ordering equipment or clothing can provide our club purchasing coordinator with a description of what you need. Payment is made made upon receipt of the equipment. The club receives no benefit from these sales and there is no fee other than the cost.
Unfortunately, we don't have a way to process credit card orders, so your payment will need to be by cash or check.
Please be sure to specify the size, quantity, etc. for each item to make sure you get what you need.
Because these are group orders, it is no problem to order small, single items like a bag of set screws or an epee tip whenever you need it.
We can place orders as often as we want, so you shouldn't have to wait long to receive what you need to keep fencing.
Location for Club Meetings and Classes
Formal classes last from 7:00-8:00, when a class is in session. Normal bouting activity and individual instruction opportunities last from 7:00-10:00PM each evening.
At AFC, we are always glad to welcome folks to our club, whether you are an experienced fencer, beginner, or just visiting the Anchorage area for a short time.
If you are a beginning fencer or are curious about fencing and would like to give it a try, then come on by the club. We have club equipment you can use. You can receive a lesson from one of our coaches, and we can give you the "Everything you ever wanted to know about fencing" speech in about 15 minutes.
If you're visiting the Anchorage area for a short time, but left your fencing gear at home, fear not! Just come by the club, suit up with club equipment, select a foil, epee or saber, grab a willing partner and fence the night away.
Fencing as a sport:
Fencing is an excellent way to improve your physical conditioning, flexibility, hand-eye coordination and stamina. The sport is an excellent family activity with almost no age restrictions or other limitations on participation.
The club provides fencing equipment for members, so very little personal investment is needed. All you really need to bring to our fencing classes are simple gym clothes and a positive attitude.
The Anchorage Fencing Club members fence all three weapons: Foil, Epee, and Sabre. Try all three or focus on your weapon of choice.
