Here is latest timeline for reopening MSFA.

The general information on the website about various programs is still accurate, so please read these things before you call Joe who is frantically working to get the club finished.

Hello All:

Please diseregard all of the other pages on the website until we reopen.

The MSFA club at 247 S. Water Street is now closed while the move takes place.

We are reopening as soon as we have all the necessary permits from the City of Milwaukee.

We are hopeful that this will happen by the beginning of August, but can't really predict with any certainty the actual date.

All club memberships are currently suspended (so you are not paying dues while we are doing the "build out") until we reopen.

In the meantime, please consider going to Caliburn fencing club to get your "fencing fix".

Here is the info Dave Neevel (from Caliburn) sent me about the club hours and fees:

HI Joe-
Here is information about the Caliburn practice schedule.
Monday 7:30-9:30 PM
Wednesday 7:30-9:30 PM
Saturday 12-2 PM
Sunday 2-4 PM
Plymouth Church Gym, 2717 E. Hampshire St., Milwaukee, WI 53211
Gym entrance is the Eastern-most door along Hampshire Ave (to the left of the windowed conference room). Enter and go down the steps.
Floor Fees: $10 per session.

As wonderful and high tech as the old MSFA club was, the new one will likely be the first completely wireless fencing club on Earth.  More about that later.  The new club is at 6814 W. Brown Deer Road in a stripmall called "Plaza Plaza".

In the meantime, since we are not meeting anymore at the old club, it is very important that our membership email me with offers of labor for all the detail work necessary to create this "flagship" club.

During the next two very important Saturdays and Sundays, we must move all of the remaining floor panels and sundries to the new facility.  Those that are not physically able do that type of work, can certainly volunteer for painting and plastering, sanding and setup work.

I will be there on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6PM on and also on Saturdays and Sundays from 9AM until I collapse.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.  The only compensation will be in the form of food (we are between a pretty good Mexican restaurant and a Deli) and cold or warm if you prefer beverages.  The tab will be picked up by MSFA.
You will also be able to take pride in having helped build the "coolest" fencing club anywhere.

A special thanks to Kevin Wolff, The Reams, Andy Christman, All of the Parkes, Ari Krayzman, Peter Barth, Collin Cooksey, The Weinbergs, Muellenbachs, Gorkas, Fingeroos, Hannas, Shawn Rooney, and many others that I can't think of at the moment.

Best Always,
Joe Biebel

"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

·        Rewire your foil (or learn how)

·        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 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.
