The Capital Fencing Academy training program, which succeeds in developing students into well-rounded athletes, consists of group classes (including conditioning), and private lessons. Our group classes, the foundation of our program, provide all fencers the fundamental and advanced instruction they need to successfully progress through each level.

Our fencing club focuses on developing both the physical (coordination, balance, speed & strength) and mental (focus, self-control, accurate decision-making, & adaptability to ever-changing situations) aspects of student athletes. Group classes are supplemented with private fencing lessons. One-on-one instruction with a Capital Fencing Academy coach reinforces and advances what fencers learn in their group class.

Private fencing lessons with Capital coaches are available to students enrolled in a Capital class. We encourage student athletes with six or more months of fencing experience to begin private lessons. For more information on individual instruction, contact us at
