Program Overview

Cutting Edge Fencing Center teaches the Modern Olympic Sport of Sabre Fencing. We offer a comprehensive curriculum of instruction with fencing classes for kids, youth, and adults. The SabreCat System is an integrated program of instruction for you to both track your progress and develop your skills in the sport.

 

The foundation of training in the SabreCat System is our Footwork and Targets class. These classes are highly structured, fun, and engaging practice times. Newer fencers focus on skill acquisition and fundamental movement techniques, while more advanced students are working on more complex applications of distance, speed, and blade manipulation. Each class also includes warmup and movement literacy skills that are critical for fencers of all levels.


As you advance through the program, you'll add different types of training including Drills Classes, Bouting, and Private Lessons. There are specific learning objectives for each skill level, as well as a skills check test in order to advance to the next level.

Our program develops: 

  • Physical conditioning and sports training

  • Fencing specific technical skills such as bladework and footwork

  • Respect, honor, and self-control

  • Tactical and strategic thinking

  • Competitive performance

Our facility is clean and our members are respectful of each other's unique circumstances. We appreciate that you are trusting us to safeguard you and your family.  We take this responsibility seriously and treat you the way we would want our own family to be treated.

Our COVID-19 safety protocols were designed in consultation with public health officials and regularly updated as new guidelines are available. We want you to be comfortable learning your new sport!

CEFC Policies

Our policy page defines and sets expectations between Cutting Edge Fencing and our members. The list of policies is available here.

Our COVID-19 safety protocols were designed in consultation with public health officials and regularly updated as new guidelines are available.

US Fencing Membership

Per USA Fencing Requirements, every fencer that participates as part of regularly scheduled class or training session at CEFC must be at least a Non-Competitive member of USA Fencing. Non-competitive membership is included in your Introduction to Fencing package, and may be renewed every season after that for a cost of $10 directly through USA Fencing. Competitive Membership in USA Fencing is required in order to compete in tournaments, and is $85 per season. Upgrading from a Non-Competitive membership to Competitive Membership within the same season will reduce the cost of the Competitive Membership by $10.

We encourage parents, especially of competitive fencers, to join USA Fencing at the Supporting Membership level. Doing so gives you access to National Tournaments at no additional cost, voting privileges within the association, and other membership benefits.
