Texas International Fencing Center

Get Started

Welcome to the fun and exciting sport of fencing! Our school caters to all individuals aged 7 and up, from the recreational fencer to those looking for future athletic scholarships, NCAA competition and/or the Olympics. We offer group classes and private lessons to individuals and families.

What we do for new students is give you the chance to schedule a walk-thru of our facility with our Head of Student Development, Coach Hector Florencia. We can schedule a convenient time and date for potential students/parents to come by and visit.

The walk-thru is meant to serve as a casual in-person questionnaire giving parents, potential students and coaches the chance to meet one another and ask questions about the program and the sport of fencing.

After the walk-thru is completed, we can schedule a no-obligation free trial week to try out the class.

Free trial weeks begin on the first Monday of every month.  If you are not able to make the first day don’t worry, we can shift the start date to accommodate your needs. 

If you would like to register for a walk-thru via email, please fill out the short Pre-Registration form below and copy and paste it to the bottom of your message. One of our TIFC staff will get back to you as soon as possible to schedule your time and date.

*If you are not able to make or schedule a walk-thru, no problem, just skip ahead and register student(s) for the Trial week over the phone or by email.
