Welcome

On behalf of the members of Three Swords Fencing Club, welcome!

Whatever the reason you came, because you’ve always wanted to learn to sword fight, or learn to handle your emotions under stress, get in shape, try a sport that challenges your body and mind, or just because you thought it looked cool and wanted to see if you could do it, you’ve come to the right place.

Three Swords Fencing Club has now been around since 2010. There is no exact date we can recall launching the club but it was around that time we started using the name and logo. When we first started we held our fencing practices in the Northwestern Michigan College, which worked until we wanted to have our own space. Then in December of 2010 we officially became a USFA club and shortly after that in April of 2011 we started renting the building on Cass Road.

In 2019 we obtained our non-profit status as a 501(c)3. Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive environment to teach the sport of fencing with the overall goal of helping people achieve confidence, fitness, and balanced lives. We stress the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork, fitness, and technical skill, that will allow our athletes to take fencing to whatever level they choose.

Thank you to our Sponsors

Fencing is a great exercise. While it’s certainly a lot of fun, it is also a great way to burn calories and build up your endurance. Strength training is also involved because you work many of the muscles in your legs, arms, and core.

Fencing can help increase mental agility and is sometimes referred to as physical chess due to the logic and strategy tactics behind the movements. The core, arms, and legs all develop a good deal of flexibility in regular fencers.
