Why Research Triangle Fencing
Like all sports, success in fencing requires practice, but it also takes patience, determination and grit. And our coaches and team mates have those qualities in abundance. Everyone is a beginner at some point, so our coaches understand what it feels like to pick up that weapon for the first time. But our coaches have also competed nationally and globally, even at the Olympics. So they understand high intensity competition and can coach you through every nuance. At Research Triangle Fencing, we will help you focus your abilities, giving you the tools necessary to fence at your desired level. We are your fencing family, your cheering squad, we will push you but never give up on you.
