Tucson Historical Fencing Academy

Practices Times 

General Instruction

Tuesdays & Thursdays 


Technical and Fundamental Class

Sundays from 11am-1pm

Coached Freeplay

Sundays from 1-3pm

Tuesdays and Thursdays are general instruction classes, with a primary focus on personal development, engaging with technical and tactical problem solving through freeplay and investigation of sources from the myriad authors we study, exploring new weapons and systems, etc.

Our Sunday Technical and Fundamentals class will involve work on a particular technical or tactical problem, and will be primarily focused on scenario problem solving and skill development tasks with a much smaller segment of the class dedicated to freeplay.

For the Coached Freeplay, plan to come prepared with what you want to work on, and be prepared to help others in their own efforts. You will be working on learning how to be a good coach and partner in addition to whatever you are looking for focus on for your own training.

Members of any experience level can attend any and all classes once they have been to a Beginner's Day class.

Beginner's Day typically occurs on the 1st Sunday of every month @1pm, and are offered at a discounted rate of $10 for the class.

Next Beginner's Day Dates:
June 2 [FULL]
July  &  August Beginner's Days will be combined into a class on July 21
September 1

Please fill out the wait list application if you're hoping to attend, and we'll get back to you ASAP!
(It might take us a couple days to respond if we're busy)
