Based in the City of Whitehorse, we can be found training in the stadium at the Nunawading Community Centre on Saturdays from 9:30am-1pm. We train most weeks of the year, except for long weekends and a Christmas break from mid-December to mid-January.
Group classes start from 9:30am, check the timetable on the Group Classes page for class details. Typically, classes include warm-up, physical conditioning, footwork and group drills, followed by fencing on the electric pistes.
Visitors are welcome; there is a $20 visitor fee. All visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association. Club equipment is available for use if required.
During school terms, we have classes in epee and sabre for ages 7+. Individual lessons and free-bouting practice can generally take place alongside classes. Beginners are welcome at the start of term or during school holidays, and should consider taking one of our regular Beginner Classes.
