Book Up Your Free Class Here


We’re more than happy to have you try before you buy, by offering a worry-free trial with no strings attached.
Our beginner programs are month to month – there is no commitment, no enrollment fee, no contract!

We make every effort to maintain a proper student/teacher ratio, and this is why all trials have to be scheduled, no more than three total trials per class (one per person, three different people in total).

Send us your name, fencing experience, and weapon (if any), and we’ll get right back to you with a confirmation.
Walk-ins are welcome but keep in mind that, in order to offer the best class experience scheduled trials have priority.

A short Trial Form, required by the US Fencing Association, the governing body of fencing in the country, is required. Download one here or just fill one out at the club, before your class.

What to wear: long, sporty pants, clean sneakers, T-shirt, bring a water bottle (filtered water is available for refills), your smile!

Please keep in mind that we take the kids’ safety very seriously, and this is why we don’t place them in classes based solely on their age. There are other valuable factors we consider, like height and body type, to name just a few.
At Olympia, we measure success not only by numbers but by harboring a large community of happy fencers of all ages!

Covid-19 Update


Trials are on, starting on September 1st, 2020!

We’re proudly taking every measure to ensure a worry-free trial to all aspiring fencers. Fencing is the “perfect” sport during the Covid-19, because involves distance and protective gear: mask and glove.
Face mask is required to be worn underneath the fencing mask, and all trial equipment is freshly cleaned and sanitized after each use.
Trials have the option to use for free club gear, or brand new mask and glove if you intend to enroll after your trial, against a $100.00 deposit.
The deposit will be refunded to you after the loan period (six months), or you can buy it. The weapon is not included in gear, club weapons are safe to use since we disinfect them after each class, and the students handle them with a glove on.

There are other options to loan to buy, after enrollment.

Please refer to the Club Reopening Safety Plan, to read all the new rules in place in order to maintain our students safe and healthy!
