NWFC - World Class Fencing Instruction

Northwest Fencing Center (NWFC) is a non-profit fencing training facility renowned for providing affordable fencing lessons and personalized instruction for athletes of all ages. NWFC began as a group of dedicated fencing athletes and has grown to become a pioneer in the Olympic sport of fencing in Oregon. NWFC is a cutting-edge international training and competition hub, with a reputation for quality instruction, committed coaches and a stellar training facility.

NWFC specializes in the techniques of foil and epee, with a strong focus on the core foundations of fencing, including coordination, agility and stance. Our accredited coaches are dedicated to providing a supportive, inspiring and fun atmosphere to foster a love of the sport and the growth of the athlete, both on the strip and off.

At NWFC, we are a community of friends, colleagues and athletes committed to providing the best possible instruction for you or your athlete in an encouraging, yet challenging environment. Read more about the Benefits of Fencing.
