Lincoln Fencing Club Classes
No experience necessary! Each class will cover all three weapons (foil, épée, and saber). Students will learn attacks, basic parries, and elementary fencing concepts and will have a chance to try electric fencing. Lincoln Fencing Club coaches are among the best in the Midwest. They have trained under experienced coaches and continue to attend clinics and tournaments to improve their skills to pass on to fencers at LFC.
NEW SESSIONS OF FENCING CLASSES BEGIN AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH QUARTER.

LINCOLN FENCING CLUB DRESS CODE
USA Fencing requires that all fencers participating in tournaments wear regulation garments: masks, gloves, jackets, chest plates, plastrons, and knickers. While most clubs require students to provide their own gear, in the interest of making fencing affordable for all students, Lincoln Fencing Club provides jackets, masks, chest plates, plastrons, and weapons for students. Gloves are also available, although most students purchase their own. Knickers are not required to participate in classes at LFC; however, there are some available for students’ use.
Although injuries are uncommon in fencing—due in part to protective gear required by the sport—they do occasionally happen. If a student is not using knickers, LFC requires that durable long pants should be worn to all classes and lessons. Athletic wear like sweatpants and lined nylon warm-up pants is recommended; jeans or denim pants are discouraged because they do not allow freedom of movement. Socks must be worn, preferably athletic socks. Court-style athletic shoes are preferred. No slip-on shoes, sandals, or open-toed shoes are allowed. If a student is not wearing proper footwear, long pants, or socks and is injured during practice, class, or a lesson, LFC cannot be held responsible. Please make sure to wear appropriate clothing to class, practice, and lessons to minimize the chance of injury.
