Swords Fencing Studio teaches epée fencing at all levels from beginners to advanced fencers, from kindergarteners to adults. We offer private instruction as well as group fencing lessons. We encourage our students to try their best, whether they want to fence recreationally or on the national or even international level. We promote sportsmanship on and off the strip.
Swords Fencing Studio is a community of supportive fencers (and families) of all ages and backgrounds, that, training together under the watchful eye of Tigran Shaginian, Head Coach, celebrates the wins and learns from the losses. We enjoy cheering on our beginning fencers as much as our NCAA and World Cup fencers. . Swords fencers understand the meaning of sportsmanship and appreciate each other's efforts, on and off the podium. Many of our students compete nationally and internationally and are recruited by the top fencing colleges.
