Look for Fencing Camp opportunuities in the summer brochure. Peoria Fencing Academy is the prime-fencing academy in Central Illinois. We are members of the United States Fencing Association. They provide beginning, intermediate and advanced classes in Foil, Epee and Sabre. We also have programs for competitive and recreational fencers. Fencing is excellent for developing cardiovascular strength, muscle mass, quick reaction time, coordination, and certainly not least of all...the ability to think quickly and critically. Fencing enables fencers to gain self-control and increase concentration and soon this self-control will begin to extend to other aspects of life. EQUIPMENT IS PROVIDED JUST WEAR ATHLETIC CLOTHING.
