Club Purpose and/or Objectives:
The NIU Fencing Club exists to educate NIU students about the sport and technique of fencing. We typically hold classes on Monday and Tuesday nights for beginning and advanced fencers, and hold open fencing on Fridays to allow all members to gather and fence with each other to take what they learn in the classes and apply it to live fencing. Open fencing also allows younger/less experienced fencers to compete against older members to learn from them as well.
