And if you have a great time, we’ll be ready to help you sign up right there. All new members who sign up for at least one month of classes before they leave get a free Houston Sword Sports t-shirt!

Announcing Camp Cutlass!

Houston Sword Sports and the Galveston Fencing Club are teaming up to present Camp Cutlass 2015!

Join Houston Sword Sports and Galveston Fencing Club in sunny Galveston, home of the nefarious pirate Jean Laffite. Develop your core skills and refine your tactics. Spend your day with conditioning, footwork, tactical drills and games, and fencing. Beginning, intermediate and advanced fencers will receive customized instruction designed for their level. After camp, bring your parents for group excursions to the beach, the Strand, and other famous Galveston attractions.

This is going to be a fun camp to work on fundamental techniques and tactics, while helping fencers develop a sense of play and creativity that will allow them to grow as fencers. The sense of play gives fencers confidence going into new situations and helps them learn to apply their skills in new and exciting ways.
