About Us

Founded in 1981 we are a non-profit club dedicated to developing the art and sport of fencing – at the local, regional, national and international levels. Since 1981 we have grown from a small location, to now the largest club in western North America. We are a three weapons club; with Epee, Saber and Foil. In addition we provide Historical fencing under the aegis of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA).

TFC’s 15,500 square feet of space provides 16 Olympic size (17 meters long, 1.5 meters wide) strips of which 11 are grounded. The club has a staff of 8 coaches this allows our students to try all three weapons and pick the one that suits them. The club provides changing rooms, locker space for members, free WIFI, and has 50 onsite parking spots with additional overflow parking during events.

This mission continues today and propels our growth :

  • Beginning and elite in-club programs
  • Youth outreach programs
  • Integrated School Fencing programs
  • Team Builders and Workshops

Our Philosophy

We teach fun, combat, and winning; you learn life & team skills, emotional mastery and fencing. In the hands of a good teacher, sports teach some of the most important skills in life.

These include basic skills like: listening, becoming coach-able, un-learning and re-learning, channeling frustration, growing in public, helping teammates grow, dedication to success, and that working hard is fun and worth it.

Fencing gets you fit, improves coordination, builds muscles and stamina, harnesses the inner competitive spirit, grows team skill, and develops the overall personality. It develops fast thinking, skills to overcome adversity, anticipation, and control over the mind and body.

We are founded and dedicated to growing the person and growing the fencer. We have grown since our founding in several dimensions, to the largest fencing club in Western North America. Come build your success with TFC where we are dedicated to the art and sport of fencing and the fencer it produces.
