How to begin

Fall 2018 - Classes Begin September 4th (Beginning Monday Class September 10)

Calendar year and closures for youth fencers is the Santa Fe Public Schools schedule.

Youth ages 8-11 (Competitive classes require electric equipment.)

Monday 4:30-5.30 Beginning Youth / Junior


Adult and teens are required to take two 60-minute private lessons in order to join the Level I classes.  This will give you a comfortable environment to learn about the basic footwork, bladework, equipment and rules of fencing. These lessons are $40 each (half price) and will make you confident joining your appropriate age group.  After two sessions the price for non-members is $70 per lesson.  After two lessons we find that the students are prepared for a fun experience with other fencers.

Junior ages 12-18 Tuesday 6-7
Adult / Junior Thursday 6-7

Please bring clean athletic shoes, Water Bottle, T-shirt and sweat pants. We will provide all other needed equipment.


Q: What Do I need First??

A: Primary purchase will need to be Knickers, Epee and Bodycord. These are paramount as NMFF cannot supply them. Secondly we have very few Chest Plates, Underarm Protectors.

We have lots of jackets, gloves, and masks which you can wait for last.

Q: Can we buy used equipment?

A: Yes and no. We are willing to sell our masks and jackets, but most of our other equipment is too large or used up (gloves and chest plates). There are no epees or bodycords for sale.

Q: Is there a store near by? Do you sell the equipment?

A: No. No. The closest fencing store is Escondido CA. This happens to be our favorite store and is called The Fencing Post.

Q: How can I possibly get the right size?

A: We have used samples of the same name brand of TFP. Best bet is to order too large as returns are your expense.
