Originally developed as the training weapon for rapier, foil is a thrusting weapon where only the torso is a target. Lightweight and fast, foil follows right-of-way rules. Like all fencing weapons, foil provides a great core workout, builds stamina and confidence as you learn to think strategically.
What to Expect
After completing your Beginning Fencing class you can pick your weapon.
Choose a class based on the fencers age and skill level. Are you a new fencer? The developmental classes are the place to start. All classes meet 3x a week. Competitive classes are filled by the coaches invitation. If you are serious about making this your competitive sport, weekly lessons are encouraged in addition to your class. Recreational fencers are equally welcome and receive the same great coaching. Fencers are typically able to start competing 6 to 8 months after they begin their foil classes.
Our club $100 annual membership fee and a USA Fencing Membership is required for participation in any of our fencing classes including Open Fencing and private lessons. Uniform rental is available for $35/month. You must be a Nova club member to enroll in the classes.
