En Garde Fencing Classes
En Garde Fencing teaches numerous classes in Santa Rosa and throughout Sonoma County. Fencing is often seen as an expensive sport, but we work hard to make it affordable and fun. If you are interested in trying fencing, check out our membership page for more information on the cost of classes. Once you see how easy it is to get started, take a look at our list of classes and come try us out! We teach group classes for ages 5 and up. It is not necessary to buy equipment to begin fencing. We provide basic fencing gear at no extra cost as part of our membership.
