The YMCA at the Heights is proud to announce that it is now a member of the United States Fencing Association and is identified as the YMCA at the Heights Fencing Club

Fencing is a mental and physical high-energy sport that combines the intrigue of swordplay with cardiovascular conditioning. An age-old art originally vital for self-defense, fencing is practiced today for its own sake. Students study footwork and blade technique and work to develop speed, timing, leverage, and precision. The result is a skill which is controlled, graceful and athletic. Participants should wear court shoes and loose-fitting clothes. Fencing equipment is provided.


Fun for all!
