January Evening Beginner Class

Cape Fear Fencing Association 6 week  beginning fencing class starts Tuesday, January 9th at 6:30 pm in the basement of the Tileston gym.  Class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The class lasts for twelve sessions with each session lasting approximately one hour. If weather or other issues force a cancellation we will add classes on until we get to twelve sessions.

Class will teach history, footwork, bladework, rules, tactics, and end in a class tournament. Appropriate for ages 8 – 80.

Cost for the 8 session class is $50. You will also need to have a USA Fencing membership for insurance purposes. The non-competitive membership costs $10 and is good until July 31, 2018.  The membership can be purchased online at under Membership.  Memberships can also be obtained through a paper form, however, USA Fencing charges an additional $10 for  processing paper forms.  I will have instructions for the online process if you cannot make it work.

Fencers should wear sneakers and loose fitting clothing. CFFA provides all fencing equipment.

Class is taught by Greg Spahr, head coach of the Cape Fear Fencing Association. He is an internationally accredited coach and has fenced internationally. His students have won both men’s and women’s North Carolina High School Championships, collegiate titles, have finished in the top 8 of National events, and have won medals at the World Championships for their age.  Contact for more information: or (910) 799-8642
