There is now a new calendar listing classes, class times, fencing times and events.

I have made several tiers of club membership available that better define what students pay based on usage and features.

I am pleased to announce “Opening Day” for Milwaukee Sport Fencing Academy.

I have chosen Saturday August 15th as the first open day and the resumption of classes and the start of new classes.

In order for you to be ready, please make sure that you have a “proper” up to date USA Fencing membership.

The membership year starts each on August 1st.

A new “student form” and a new “waiver of liability” form is needed to be filled out and returned along with payment for membership, to participate in the club.  If you have “leftover dues” you will still need to fill out and return the forms.

If you are signing up for a novice class, or are in a class using plastic gear supplied by MSFA, go to the Novice & Intermediate page and follow those instructions.  

 If you are an advanced fencer (a fencer using steel equipment), we require that you have a “competitive” USA Fencing membership.  Here is a “railstation” Link  to get you started https://www.railstation.org/USFencing/default.aspx

The MSFA club (NOT A MAILING ADDRESS) address is: 6814 W. Brown Deer Rd, Milwaukee WI 53223

MSFA Mailing address:  Joseph Biebel  130 E. Brown Deer Rd,  Bayside, WI 53217

The new facility is in a single story strip mall called “Plaza Plaza”.  It has excellent parking in front and behind, in a well lit lot.  The mall has 2 restaurants; Schlotzsky’s Deli and the Jalisco Charcoal Grill Mexican restaurant.  Additionally, there are many restaurants on Brown Deer Road within ½ mile.

Four blocks away is a Walmart for the majority of your shopping needs and 6 blocks West is a Menard’s, which I’ve heard, has an entire section devoted to fencing ;)

Gone are the stairs, the special downtown events that snarl traffic and take our parking away.  The new, Well-lit air-conditioned modern facility, is a noticeable improvement in every way.  Sadly, moving has meant some students are further away.  Happily, moving has made it closer for others.

Please pay attention to this:  Brown Deer Road is very heavily patrolled.  It is very rare when I am going to or from the club, not to see a least one vehicle pulled over for some infraction.  There are many law enforcement agencies involved as Brown Deer Road goes through Bayside, River Hills, Brown Deer, Milwaukee and Menomonee Falls.  Let’s get to the club safely and without donating to the local “tax” base.

The club is once again a full USA Fencing membership club, using their insurance, etc.  We will be having numerous events including sanctioned tournaments open to all.

"Plastic Lesson"

Welcome to the

Milwaukee Sport Fencing Academy (MSFA)


The MSFA is the only "dedicated" fencing facility in the state.

Our mission is to grow the sport of fencing in Milwaukee.  Our primary goals are to foster fun, exercise, sport, and to secure the benefits that amateur sport can impart to children and adults. 

At MSFA you can:

·        Take a class

·        Watch a fencing video

·        Buy/Rent equipment

·        Take a private lesson

·        Compete in a tournament

·        Fence with your friends

·        Read a book from our fencing library


Stretch, warm-up, practice point control at a target

…or take a break and watch someone else work up a sweat for a while

Who Can Fence?

We’ve taught children as young as 6 with safe and excellent results.   Children under nine require a parent to take (be in the class) the class with them.

Wednesday evening is our new adult beginner and intermediate class time(s)

This is a wonderful sport, or recreation for persons of any age.
