Frequently Asked Questions

Youth Beginners (ages 7-13)

Start: New classes start every FIRST WEDNESDAY of the month 5:30PM at Wheeler Hall, 500 Chestnut Avenue, Towson, MD 21204.

Students will build up agility and stamina in an age-appropriate but challenging class involving:

  • Stretch, Strength & Agility Exercises
  • Footwork
  • Bladework
  • Bouting

Coach Larbi Soufiane will introduce your child to the concepts of modern competitive fencing in a cooperative, kids-friendly atmosphere. Our program focuses on teaching the proper way to move (balanced advancing, retreating, lunging, acceleration units), using distance both for offense and defense, using the foil both to score on the opponent and to keep from getting scored on). At the end of the course, the students will get to experience fencing using the electric scoring apparatus.

The club provides all gear: masks, gloves, plastrons (a protective garment worn over the shoulder and armpit of the sword warm), and foils.

Our first Youth Beginners Class in 2020 will start on January 8, 2020, with new Groups starting every first Wednesday of the month!

Location: Wheeler Hall at Loyola Blakefield, 500 Chestnut Avenue, Towson MD 21204.

With Coach Larby holding hands and wiping noses strip-coaching Baltimore MidAtlantic fencers at this year’s Capitol Clash on Friday and Saturday, Coach Chris will be filling in for him at this Friday’s 6:30PM foil class!

All his “favorite students” from his former Saturday morning conditioning class at BFC are surely excited to hear that—and are getting ready for Grandmaster Lee’s  “Twenty-Five Knuckle Poosh-up”!
