Coastal Bend Fencing Society
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 meet at the food court at Sunrise Mall (5858 South Padre Island Drive) in Corpus Christi, Tx. We offer all three Olympic weapons (Saber, Epee, & Foil). Thursday nights from 6:30-7:30 pm is when the beginner foil class is offered. Currently that class is full and will finish in the last week in November. So, we will start accepting new fencers the beginning of December during that time. When a fencer has learned all the beginner foil skills, then he/she earns the beginner's foil certificate and patch, and is able to join the other classes. Private epee lessons are offered on Mondays with Richard or group saber classes on Tuesdays with Grace & Michael from 6:30-8:30 pm. Once comfortable with electric equipment (4 months of attendance), the fencer is encouraged to purchase their own electric weapon(s) and may join the Thursday open fencing night from 6:30-8:30 pm. We have equipment that fencers may borrow until they can purchase their own. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
