Oberlin College Flaming Blades


We teach a beginning fencing class every semester as part of Oberlin's Experimental College program. Here, students learn the basics of modern fencing. No previous experience is required, and once the semester is over, ExCo students may join the official team. The class meets twice a week, usually runs between 10 and 16 students, and can be taken for 0 or 1 credits. The Exco is a fantastic way to get into fencing if you have never fenced before, or to get back into shape if you fenced previously but haven't in a while!

This year, FenceCo will be taught by Michelle Liu (Women's Epee/Armorer) and Silas Pelkey (Men's Foil)

Please show up to the ExCo fairs at the beginning of each semester to sign up for this and all of the other great ExCos! (Or you could email us to get on the list sooner!)
