Hi! The ISU Fencing Club is a student-run organization whose members are taught the fundamentals of this exciting sport. We fence all three Olympic weapons: foil, epee, and saber. The club meets twice a week, with one practice devoted to footwork and blade-work drills and lessons, and the other devoted to open bouting. The ISUFC holds and attends many tournaments each year, during which the rules and guidelines of conduct of the US Fencing Association are observed. We welcome fencers of all experience levels. Come check us out!
