Row of fencers

Welcome to Blue Ridge Fencing Center



Blue Ridge Fencing Center (BRFC) is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote fencing and to provide high-quality instruction in the modern sport of Olympic style fencing for those in the Charlottesville, Virginia area and its surrounding communities. BRFC offers a safe, team-oriented learning environment for adults and students eight years and older to discover and excel at the sport of fencing. BRFC delivers excellence in fencing education for students of all skill sets and interests from the brand new to the experienced fencer and for those interested in recreational or competitive fencing.


Staying Safe at BRFC

While we are all happy to fence again, we want to be safe doing it. BRFC is taking the following steps to reduce our risk of spreading illness:
-    Small class sizes
-    Hybrid classes held outdoors and indoors; front doors always open for air circulation
-    Cleaning of shared surfaces after each class
-    No shared equipment. BRFC will offer a rental option for fencers who do not already own their own equipment.
-    Face coverings must be worn at all times while inside and outdoors when directed by your coach.

Stay Informed!
