CFC Philosophy

Concord Fencing Club offers fencing instruction for kids, teens, and adults ranging from beginners to advanced fencers and elite competitors. The philosophy for beginners is mostly educational and recreational. For experienced fencers the emphasis depends upon the fencer's desires - either recreational or competitive. How a person approaches the sport depends upon personal factors.


CFC is here for ALL fencers.

Our approach to instruction is always positive, and our hope is that each fencer will enjoy and feel successful in what he or she is doing. Fencing has long been recognized as an excellent activity for developing self confidence and body awareness. Beyond the skills needed for fencing, special emphasis is placed on cultivating principles that are essential to achievement in all types of athletic and professional pursuits: Discipline and sportsmanship. Every fencer is taught based upon his or her own ability in a progressive fashion, allowing each one to move along a preset sequence of skills at his or her own pace.

An essential goal is to have fun!
