The Brooklyn Fencing Center opened in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, in January 2003. Now in Gowanus, we are proud to be Brooklyn’s longest-running competitive fencing club, and our mission is to make the excitement and joy of fencing more accessible to Brooklynites of all ages. Fencing is a unique sport, rich in history, that offers something for everyone! It challenges you mentally and physically in a way that few pastimes can. Not so keen on team sports? Fencing lets you shine on your own merits, and you’ll still make new friends along the way. And if you’re thinking college acceptances, fencing is great for filling out the resume (or even getting a little extra attention from some schools). Plus your seven-year-old can continue to enjoy fencing–even competition–till she’s seventy-plus. Not too many sports can say that. And best of all, it’s fun!
