We train at our Mitcham venue on Tuesday nights, 7pm-9:30pm.
We train most weeks of the year, except for Melbourne Cup Day and a Christmas break from mid-December to mid-January.
Training begins with a Junior class beginning at 7pm aimed at at young fencers who aren’t allowed to stay up as late as 9pm. Then open group warm-up and footwork drills starting at 7:30pm for our Novices, epee, and sabre squads. These are followed by group drills, free-fencing practice and individual lessons. We routinely have all three weapons being fenced here.
Visitors are welcome, there is a visitor fee of $20. Visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association. Equipment is available for hire if required.
