M – Th: 12:30 – 2:30 p.m.

When practiced by children during their developing years, fencing increases executive function including focus, suppression of impulsive reactions, and mental manipulation of ideas.

Fencing combines the athleticism of tennis, soccer or basketball with the discipline of a martial art. It is also an exceptionally safe sport, with fencers suffering fewer injuries than athletes in most other sports.

It is a challenge both physically and tactically between two opponents. Using replica swords – the foil, epee and saber – fencers try to score points by hitting one another while moving back and forth on an area called a piste. Modern fencing is a sport in which adults and kids, men and women can excel. It is a dynamic, evolving martial art with a five-thousand-year history behind it.

La Jolla Fencing Academy are the instructors and have shared, “Fencers have a vast advantage when it comes to college applications! Fencers learn that the mix of high scholastic and fencing achievement is a winning combination for success.”

Students attending classes that end at 12:00 noon must be picked up at 12:00 noon.
