(Next session will start January 6th)
We offer new students with no prior experience an eight hour introduction to foil fencing. Come to a one hour class, once a week. We provide the safety gear and equipment. You learn safety rules, vocabulary, basic fundamentals of footwork, the blade work of foil fencing AND you'll have a great time with others of similar age. This session includes classes for YOUTH (ages 8-12) and ADULTS (everybody over 13).

BFC’s All-Academic Fencers
BFC congratulates its’ junior fencers who are recognized as members of the 2012-2013 All Academic Team: Delaney Green, Andrew Lee, Duncan Rheingans-Yoo, Celine Shanosky, Daniel Wang, Vivian Williams, and Daniel Budai. BFC was tied with one other club in the entire United States for the greatest number of All-American Academic Athletes.
USFA strives to motivate junior fencers to achieve great results on the strip and in the classroom. USFA has combined efforts with Absolute Fencing Gear to develop the USA Fencing/Absolute Fencing Gear All Academic Team. Recipients must have demonstrated high academic achievement by earning no less than a 3.5 GPA. Junior fencers must also submit coach and teacher recommendations that demonstrate the fencer’s commitment to the sport and to academics. Again, congratulations to all of our All-Academic Team members and may your efforts both on the strip and in the classroom continue to be rewarded!
