Equipment Requirements & Reviews

What equipment
do I need to fence?

If you're taking a class with us, NOTHING! We provide practice gear for our students.

But once you discover how much fun fencing is, you will probably want to get your own gear.

There is the BASIC CLOTHING that is required for all weapons.

And there is additional equipment required for EPEE or FOIL or SABER competition.

Yes, we absolutely do fence in a cornfield! Literally at Bluff Grange, a farmers' coop building in the corner of a cornfield on the bluffs over the Missisippi River Valley near St. Louis in Southern Illinois.

We have both recreational and competitive fencers of all ages.
