How to start fencing

With us, you always have the opportunity to come by for a free and no-obligation trial lesson.

This is where you get the opportunity to meet the coaches, get a tour of the facilities and of course try the sport.

Before you attend training for the first time, however, there are some practical things you need to know.

Clothes / equipment

It is important that you have clothes on that you can move in. We do not go into fashion much, so you can be completely confident in showing up in the clothes you feel most comfortable in.

However, we require that you wear long pants and indoor shoes.

Equipment is borrowed from the club the first few times, after which you can rent the equipment or choose to acquire your own.


You must wear a sensible training t-shirt, preferably sweat-transporting.


You must wear long loose training pants. If you only have thights, then they should be long and you should have shorts on the outside.


You must wear indoor shoes. It can be cleaned running shoes, but we do not recommend it as they wear out quickly. Shoes for indoor sports are generally recommended.


It gets hard and you get to sweat, so a towel is a really good idea to bring.

Water bottle

You will need something to drink during the workout and therefore you need to have a water bottle with you. We do not allow you to drink from the tap, so if you have forgotten it, you can borrow a mug.


When you meet for training, the instructor / trainer will review the safety rules as well as the most important rules and guidelines.

Please note that we have stricter guidelines during this time and it is therefore necessary that you have read these before you meet for training.

Come prepared

While we'll probably have to teach you all the cool tricks and naughty tricks, knowing the most basic things can be helpful.

Below you will find the three weapons that make up modern sports fencing and which you can learn from us.

Take a look if you get the time - although it may not be everything that makes sense here and now, we guarantee that it does when you come to training.
