Adult & club programs

Per the San Francisco Department of Health guidelines, GGFC is currently not offering group classes for youth or adults. 

HOWEVER- Adults 18 and over are allowed to take the Fast track class or schedule individual sessions. Additionally, if you and your partner are a "bubble" or "cohort" you may take the class together. If you are interested, please contact us at goldengate.fencingcenter@gmail.com

Fast Track Class

Designed for the adult who has never fenced before or would like a refresher class before jumping into the AFL, the FAST TRACK class will teach you all the basics. This one time, one hour class focuses on the fundamentals of the sport and  will let you enter the regular monthly program with increased confidence in your newly acquired skills.

NOTE: Because of COVID 19 - This class will not use any Fencing Gear. You will be fencing with your very own pool noodles that you may take home as a souvenir so the you may challenge your roommate, husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend to a duel. You will win of course, as you will know what you are doing! Viva la Pool Noodle!

Cost: $75

Step 3: Club
Club Fencing

GGFC’s Club Training level is designed for athletes who love the sport but choose to continue at a level focused on fun, socialization and local competition. 

 

Club Training is a gateway to lifelong participation in fencing. The US Olympic Committee American Development Model recognizes that not all athletes are interested committing to a competitive based track. Instead, many athletes want to participate in other sports, develop for personal achievement, focus on the health aspects of sport and compete for challenge and fun of it.

 

The Club Training level offers all that! It provides the maximum flexibility for training and offers the opportunity to train with high performance, competitive fencers.
