About the Club

During the fall and spring semester, we meet every: Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 6-8 pm in the Aerobics room at the Multipurpose building.
The club own and rents out the equipment, so it is not required that you bring your own.
The membership fees are $10 per semester, so $20 for the whole year
Newcomers can fence for a few nights without paying to see if they like it.
That money goes to things like buying more equipment, capital for various fundraising efforts, even a pizza party.

Currently only MS&T students, faculty, and staff are allowed to become members of the Fencing Club, but all are welcome to come.

For those new to town, the Multipurpose building is on the corner of 10th street and N Bishop Ave. Ask for the martial arts or aerobics room.

Club Equipment

We can and do rent out epees, sabers and foils for the duration of our meetings along with the jackets, gloves and helmets.
We do not rent but do use the electrical scoring equipment.

Finally, we also have three DVDs in the University Library, under course reserve: Fencing.
There is two training DVDs for epee and one how to repair equipment DVD.
They may be checked out with your student ID, for three days at a time.
