Guard Up is more than a place to learn how to sword-fight, but we shouldn’t understate our experience in the art of swordsmanship. We are a United States Fencing Association (USFA) member school. Our instructors work closely with experts in Historical Weaponry to translate and extrapolate techniques from ancient texts for Historical Weapons. And our facility hosts training seminars and workshops with some of the most well-known experts in the field of swordsmanship. Our coaching methods have been developed to make our sports and activities a positive life experience for all ages. We support adult, teen and youth students, as well as their parents in our family-positive environment.
As well, our staff is constantly researching and developing curriculum for our sword and fencing courses to keep them fresh and exciting. After all, swordsmanship isn’t just our job… it’s our passion!
