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.
The club meets on:
- Monday evenings 7:00-9:30
- Wednesday evenings 7:00-9:30
