Read what our fencers have to say about us:
I started fencing at Bladeworks 7 years ago and it’s become like a second family to me. The coaches are incredible and know how to push you as much as you want to be pushed but are also very willing to explain and breakdown the reasons for individual moves and strategies. The class atmosphere is super positive and encouraging, despite (or maybe because of) the very mixed levels of people fencing together. If you want to learn how to fence in Toronto, this is the place!
