Most common questions:

  Can I "drop off" my child and leave?  We are a "Safe-Sport" facility.  This means you never leave your child alone with an instructor.  You must always come in and stay with your child (under 18) unless you have an agreement with another parent/caregiver in the class.  If your child is enrolled in a class, and you are the first parent there, you may not leave your child in our care.

  What if I can't/don't make all of the class sessions?  Then you lose that class(es).  Six consecutive weeks.  No extensions, no refunds.  Almost no one makes all the sessions

  Who else is in the class, what are the other kids age range, etc.?  The enrollments are all co-ed,  the age ranges are all over the place and constantly changing.  We will never give out information about other class members, so please, do not ask.  Children are welcome, adults are welcome,adults with their children are welcome.

  Can I just bring my paperwork and payment to the club to get started.  No.  All details including payment must be handled in advance, arriving by "snail mail", you will then receive an email acknowledgement.


General questions What kind of fencing do we do?
 

This is the Olympic sport of fencing and we specialize in “foil” fencing.  Tournament weapons are made of steel and, of course, a great deal of protection is necessary.  Our classes are taught with plastic systems eliminating the need for much of the protective gear while also allowing students learn not to react to their "flinch" response.

Is fencing safe: 
Yes.  Fencing has a remarkable safety record and MSFA is very strict on safety rules and measures.  Having fenced for 50 plus years at a high level, I have had some injuries.  Fencing injuries are typically, just like other sports, mostly caused by falls and muscle strains.  Blade injuries are very rare.
