Youth Classes


Our Initiation to Fencing class introduces basic fencing footwork and various attack and defense techniques needed to obtain the Yellow Armband. No fencing experience is required.

While the club provides specialized fencing equipment for those enrolled in the classes (foil, mask, glove, and jacket), participants are asked to bring a t-shirt, a pair of sweat or track pants (NO SHORTS), and non-marking athletic shoes.

Through the Ottawa Developmental Fencing Circuit (ODFC), beginner fencers also have the opportunity to participate in local beginner competitions. Those interested in learning more about the ODFC should visit odfc.ottawafencing.ca.

Please Note: Fencers enrolled in a class DO NOT need to purchase a club membership.
