Fencing is one of only four sports in every modern Olympics. The United States Olympic fencing team continues to grow and be a force to be reckoned with in the world. Be sure to watch Olympic fencing on nbcolympics.com/fencing and then try it for yourself.
Royal Arts trains fencers from 5 – 105 whether you want to be a future Olympian or just fence for fun. We train in all three Olympic sport weapons as well as having a little fun from time to time with historical weapons like rapier and longsword. Royal Arts also hosts the Arnold Schwarzenegger Fencing Classic, one of the largest tournaments in the nation and an event where our Olympians attend. Pictured to the right are two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Mariel Zagunis and Olympic Silver Medalist Tim Morehouse at the Arnold. We’ve hosted many other fencing Olympians, too!
