What is Fencing?
We primarily practice historical swordsmanship. Members of the club learn how to use a rapier - think The Three Musketeers to learn how to fight in a period style. Advanced students learn how to use long swords (more like what a knight would have used) daggers, bucklers, and more. The club is open to everyone on the university campus, and is free to join. Men will need one piece of additional equipment, but otherwise we have plenty of loaner gear to get you started. Experience is not required! We welcome everyone, from the casual swashbuckler to the serious student. Classes are always on Thursday nights at 7:00 pm, but the location changes. Please contact Cindy Speer for more information.
We'd also like to mention that the fencing club does more than meet and play with swords. We do tournaments, fight in grand melees (groups of fencers fighting each other) and go to many medieval/renaissance themed events. Every summer we attend a week long medieval encampment. The opportunities to network, learn leadership skills, get healthier - and, most importantly, have fun - are endless. We hope to see you soon!
