No medals but good fencing. Chance and Warren traveled to Memphis Tennessee this weekend to take on the 2018 Tennessee State High School Fencing Champions of Memphis University School.

As we were leaving, one of the MUS coaches asked us to let them know if we were going to host a high school tournament at our place. They want to visit us. How fun would that be? We'll have to look into doing just that.

Chance lunges from the left.

Warren lunges from the right.

The team is headed to Memphis

This weekend Memphis University School is hosting a high school 3 weapon tournament.
We currently have fencers for the foil and saber events.
It's not too late to add your name to the travel roster but you need to speak up quick!

Welcome to the New Year

Tomrrow, Wednesday January 2nd we FINALLY get back to our regular schedule.


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.
