Foil is Art; Epee is Truth; Saber is Theater!

 

 

We are proud to be the ONLY official US Fencing Association club south of San Antonio, Texas and were founded 14 years ago in Robstown, Texas.  All activities are overseen by Grace Buchanan, a certified fencing instructor (Moniteur) with the United States Fencing Coaches Association and a rated fencing referee with the Fencing Officials Commision.  We have most recently been fencing at Sunrise Mall, but currently are on summer break.  We will begin accepting new fencers the second week of September on Sundays from 2-3 pm. When a fencer has learned all the beginner foil skills in that class and had earned the beginner's foil certificate and patch, then he/she may begin attending the next class where saber and epee are taught as well as basic vocabulary, refereeing skills, armory, etc... Once comfortable with electric equipment (4 months of attendance), the fencer is encouraged to purchase their own electric weapon(s). We have equipment that fencers may borrow until they can purchase their own online.  Fencers are required to join US Fencing as an affiliate for insurance purposes.  We accept all ages and offer wheelchair fencing and individual lessons are availabe upon request.  The first class/lesson is complimentary. For more information about prices, contact Grace Buchanan at 361-815-4150 OR email her at graceatbayarea@gmail.com.
