The bottom line:

Our speciality, the thing we’ll stand up and say we do better than any other club, is teaching adult beginners how to play the game for fun.

Training for Adults.

Depending on your goals and current experience, we have a pathway to get you from where you are to where you want to go.

1. No sabre fencing experience

Never done fencing before? No problem! We can give you the skills to start enjoying the sport within your first hour of training.

Most of our fencers are adults who started their fencing training with us, with no prior experience. Not many people have fenced before, which is kind of what we’re here to fix. If you’re a total non-fencer, then you should come and give it a try with our Intro to Sabre class.

Introductory class


The place to start! These two-hour small-group classes are completely hands-on. You will learn the basic skills and scoring rules, then by end of your first hour we’ll have you fencing matches in full electronic scoring gear. You’ll get plenty of coaching and assistance from your instructors, and you can do as many matches as you like. It’s an active and exciting class, so bring your sports gear, a water bottle and a camera.

Want to learn more after your intro? Enrol in one of our courses. We run 10-week courses designed to take you build your skills and confidence from complete beginner (Level 1) to experienced competitors (Level 5). Details here.

Each course consists of small-group classes with a minimum of 4 people and a max of 6, and a multi-cohort grading exam on the last Sunday.

We get that you’re busy and may miss a class. Tell us and we will reschedule you into another class of your Level that week. If you miss a week completely, you can book with a private lesson with one of our instructors (see Pricing) to keep up with your cohort.

Or leapfrog them. We don’t judge. We don’t talk. We understand.

2. Some previous fencing experience

If you’ve fenced before but are not sure what level you’re currently at, we suggest you book a private lesson with an instructor to assess what training options will suit you best.

Or come as a Guest of a Member.

3. Current competitive athlete

If you’re an experienced sabre fencer and want lessons, or just a place to bout, we can help. We have instructors available for individual lessons, and you can always come as a Guest of a Member.
