What we're about

The New York City Fencing Meetup is dedicated to making fencing as fun and inexpensive as possible.

We run classes on Saturdays, and charge a modest fee to cover the costs of renting space, maintaining equipment, and overhead. Instruction is provided gratis (Free!) by the group's staff, and we also lend out equipment (Free!)

There may be optional additional professional coaching available at an additional fee.

We fence in the summer in Central Park (Free!)
We fence most Tuesday nights (Free!) at MS-131 when school is in session.

We are the most friendly fencing fellowship in New York City, probably the world. Come join us!

Saturday Fencing 1pm Battery Dance

Battery Dance Studios

$15.00

We fence foil predominantly, but if you fence epee or saber, let me know and I'll bring mine. It also helps if you leave a comment if you're going to the meetup and you'd like to fence epee or saber. We will be charging $15 per meeting to cover the cost of renting the studio. There is a significant discount for purchasing the entire semester which includes 14 2 hour classes. We will do our best to provide instruction appropriate for each individuals skill level. We have some equipment to lend, but if you would like to borrow, please contact me at least 24 hours before the meetup, and let me know if you are left handed. The entrance to Battery Dance is at 380 Broadway near White St. near a sign that says "Empire Apparel" Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/LRZEVHFdfnF2 Pics of Entrance: https://photos.app.goo.gl/u1crxo3zJ3vg5qgi6 Ring the bell for the 5th floor and we'll buzz you up. Beginners are welcome. Experienced fencers welcome. Everybody's welcome! - Mike

Tuesday Night Free Fencing

MS131

As part of YMCA/NYC DOE's Beacon Program, and as an extension of our Saturday's fencing program to practice what you've learned, we have space for open fencing on Tuesday nights at MS131 (100 Hester Street). Anyone of any skill level is welcome. We only have limited fencing gears to lend at this location, so please bring your own equipment if at all possible. If you're new to fencing and need beginner's lessons, we encourage you to take our fencing lessons on Saturdays at the Battery Dance Studio. Please do RSVP on this meetup site, as we'll cancel the event if we have fewer than 3 fencers. Be sure to also update your RSVP if you can no longer attend, as we reserve the right to de-list you after three no-shows. Pics of Entrance: https://photos.app.goo.gl/azYBePw68fvAt5sX6 En Garde!
