SW Florida Fencing Academy announces new class schedule

By Staff | Dec 9, 2009

New classes for beginning fencers will start on Tuesday, Jan. 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the academy’s fencing facility, located at 4210 Fowler Street in Fort Myers. Space is limited so advanced registration is required.

The club is open six days a week, so there is ample opportunity to fence once you have mastered the basics. Our ongoing program provides classes for intermediate and advanced level fencers as well as the beginner.

No previous experience is necessary. Classes are open to all ages 8 and up, and parents are encouraged to participate with their kids. Fencing provides a great physical and mental workout. It is a fun way to exercise without the bordom of more conventional methods.

The SW Florida Fencing Academy (formerly the Fort Myers Fencing Club) has been in existence for more than 30 years and has produced some of Florida’s top fencers.

“While we teach at a level to produce excellence in competition, we also encourage anyone who simply wants to fence for recreation,” a club press release stated.

To register, call 239-939-1338. More information is available at the club’s Web site at www.swfloridafencing.org.
