Classical Fencing is a fun activity which is well suited to boys and girls of all ages, levels, abilities, and disabilities. In addition to being a fun and exciting activity, classical fencing is a superb form of exercise, which builds endurance, strength, flexibility, and the capacity to relax under fire. It improves coordination, while benefiting both circulation, and respiration.
The high ideals of chivalry, honor, and integrity are a primary focus in the sport of fencing. Participants are taught a hundreds-of-years-old "Code of Honor" through object lessons and examples which directly apply to both fencing and to life.
Fencing lessons and practices are held three (4) times per week at the The Woman's Club of Bakersfield (upstairs) 2030 18th Street, Bakersfield CA 93301 . (map).

- On Saturdays there is Footwork, Free Bounting and Private Lessons (see schedule/fees).
