Arlington Fencers' Club
Providing opportunities in Arlington Virginia
     for learning and growing in the sport of fencing.

Serving Arlington and Northern Virginia

Welcome!  Arlington Fencers' Club is dedicated to the study of fencing and expanding the sport’s recreational practice and competition opportunities in Arlington.

Young and old, experienced and beginner, if you want to fence, let's do it. Our initial emphasis has been youth fencing, and we especially invite Arlington residents grades 2-12; we encourage adult fencers to join us as well.

Our Fencing program is led by a team of top coaches including a World Champion and Olympic Medalist.

    * Founded April 2011 -  we have deep roots in Arlington, and we lay claim to the legacy of our old clubs, Arlington's own Fred Appel fencing club (Olympic fencing), and DiGrasse’s School of Fence. Arlington has an ancient if uneasy association with sabers in particular. .
