Our History

Houston Sword Sports is a fencing club with a new philosophy. Fencing is a fast-paced, dynamic sport that challenges the mind and body. We all have sword fantasies and dream of fighting our way to the top, testing ourselves against our adversary. Join us to tap into this and learn about yourself as you learn how to fight with a sword.

We are fencers who want to bring our joy of the sport to Houston and give everyone a chance to experience fencing. Coaches Dan Gorman and Liz Mayerich have over 45 years combined coaching experience teaching all levels of fencers. We want to bring a fun exercise and social experience to you.
