Hamilton Area YMCA


Benefits of Fencing

  • Fencing is an aerobic form of exercise.  It supports heart and mental health by increasing oxygen in the blood and releasing endorphins that lead to a positive sense of health.
  • Fencing is fun and social!
  • There is no equipment to purchase.  The Y provides all the equipment needed to participate.  Most returning students end up liking it so much that they purchase their own equipment but it is not required.
  • Ages 7 - 99!
