San Francisco Sabre Fencing
Karen Lum, Owner
This program is for advanced level fencers who aspire to become fencing masters. Becoming a master of Sabre takes years of practice, perseverance, dedication, and hard work. This program emphasizes constant bouting between its members, private lessons with coaches, and frequent participation in tournaments. Program members fence against coaches regularly and participate in drills focused on perfecting their Sabre form.
Sign up to begin your master training.
Every Saturday, fencers are encouraged to come and practice with each other and with coaches in 2 hours of free fencing. This kind of practice, nick-named “Fight Club,” is a place for fencers to practice the skills they have been learning in real-time, on-the-strip bouting. Open Sparring is included in club membership, and participation is encouraged.
PARTIES & EVENTS
Have you ever wanted to try fencing, but never got around to it? Good news! We offer parties for people of all ages. Do you want to fence for your birthday? Are your children interested in sword-fighting? Did you want to take your co-workers out to a night of sword-fighting fun? We got you covered. Events will include a verbal introduction to Sabre fencing, a group lesson with a coach involving basic footwork and blade-work, access to clean equipment, and free, real-time fencing at the end.
