Fencing has existed for thousands of years in many forms and many cultures.
The history of fencing parallels the evolution of civilization, back from the days of ancient Egypt and Rome, to the barbaric Dark Ages, to the fast and elegant Rennaissance, up to the modern, increasingly popular fencing of today.
Fencing has always been regarded as more than a sport – it is an art form, an ancient symbol of power and glory, and a deeply personal, individual form of expression.
Fencing history is still being made today.
Olympia Fencing Center is a competitive fencing club featuring over 6500 SF, 15 electrical/custom made for shock absorption fencing strips, state of the art equipment and home to over 70 active members, ages 6 to 60 and over.

“We raise champions,” said Head Coach and owner Daniel Hondor. “Fencing is a sport unlike any other. It engages you entirely – body and mind. For most people, it becomes an addiction and it a sport you can continue to enjoy no matter what age you are.”
If you are like the thousands who fell in love with this sport, your fencing club will become your second home. At Olympia, we take that responsibility seriously. Our fencers are competitors – and best friends. There are no age barriers, skill barriers, or shyness.
