Classes & Lessons

IMG_1235CGSF emphasizes a curriculum grounded in the traditional French and Italian schools of fencing.  We teach a martial approach to swordsmanship in our fencing / HEMA classes, handed down through the generations, master to student.

We teach classes in both French and Italian foil, as well as dueling sword, small-sword, sabre, rapier, dagger, and other weapons of classical and historical fencing.



Fencing / HEMA classes are currently held Monday and Wednesday evenings at the Vineyards Community Park Rec Center in Naples, FL (near Vanderbilt Beach Blvd. and I-75).  Registration for Monday and Wednesday classes is separate; you can sign up for classes either day or for both!
