YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Fencing Club

The sport of fencing incorporates agility, strength, coordination, balance, and timing. In fencing, physical ability is just as important as having a strong mental edge.

The competitors of a fencing match wear protective gear including a jacket, glove, and head gear. The sport of fencing features three different levels, which are categorized by the type of weapon used in each level. The weapons used include the epee, foil, and the saber. Fencing is an aerobically challenging sport. In order to condition one’s body, initial fencing training consists of challenging conditioning exercises.

Head coach, John Rea, has won medals in all three weapon at the national level and made the US Veterans team twice, in 2009 in Russia in Saber, and 2015 in France in Foil, finishing 13 or 14th in the world each time. He has been teaching the sport for over 20 years. Additional coaches are Scott Butler and Dr. Sventlana Staub. The club provides fencing equipment (jackets, masks, gloves, weapon, scoring machines) to all participants.

All equipment is provided.

All levels, even beginners, are welcome!
