Learn to Fence for Free – September 1

Feb free footwork 1280

Fencers learn to advance during our most recent free class.

It’s that time of year again! We will be holding free beginning fencing classes on Thursday, September 1. Come to the Bellaire Rec Center (7008 5th St, Bellaire) and learn to fence!

Youth ages 6-13: 6:00-7:00 (Limit: 20 participants)

Teens and adults 13+: 7:30-8:30 (Limit: 12 participants)

This time we’re going to do something a little differently – to participate you MUST register before class begins, and the class sizes will be capped.This guarantees that we have enough fencing gear for everyone, which means you will get to fence your very first night!

Come dressed to move in long pants or shorts that cover you to the knee, and close-toed athletic shoes.

To register: use the buttons below, or email Info@HoustonSwords.com and tell us your name, age (kids and teens only), shirt size and whether you are right or left handed. Spaces are limited so sign up now! (Your homework between now and then: root for Team USA in the Olympics!)

Zombie Fencing: Aim for the Head

Some weapons are more effective for fighting zombies than others.

At Houston Sword Sports we provide a number of different types of events. This weekend we organized a Zombie Defense Class for Pariveda Solutions, an IT company with an office in Houston. These guys are ready for a zombie apocalypse now, provided the zombies also advance and retreat. Check out the gallery below to see what we did.

Several of the participants are also in an Indian dance group, so we got treated to a show at the end.

We’re starting Saturday classes, and the first one’s free!

Saturday Class Announcement

Since we started holding classes a year ago, a lot of you have told us that you want to be able to fence on Saturdays. We’ve been working on it, and have found a great place to hold classes every Saturday morning. We’ll be at The Zone, in a spacious upstairs room. We hope you’ll come check it out, especially because the first class on February 27 will be free!

Youth class (6-13): 9:00-10:00 AM
Teen & Adult class (14+): 10:30 AM-12:00 noon
Location: The Zone, 10371 Stella Link Rd, Houston TX 77025

Starting March 5, the classes will be the same rates as at Bellaire: $20 for one class, $75 for four, or $140 for unlimited monthly visits. The best part is that you can use the same plan to pay for classes at Bellaire and the Zone. This means that if you usually come to a youth class on Tuesday, but have to miss a Tuesday, you can come on Saturday to make it up. If you’re on an unlimited membership, you can come to any and every class of the week!

Use the Sign Up buttons below to register for the first, free class on February 27; or email Liz@HoustonSwordSports.com if you have questions.
