Katie and Irwin Kahn Jewish Community Center

Thank you for your interest in Columbia Fencers’ Club. We are a registered USA Fencing “Member Club” located in the heart of Columbia, South Carolina.

Have fun learning the footwork and blade actions of this dynamic Olympic sport. Fencers enjoy many benefits including exercise, health and fitness, mental focus, tactical thinking, social opportunities, competitive challenge, recreation, personal growth, theatrical appreciation, and more. Discover its benefits for yourself! Class is led by former US World Championship Team member and former #1 Ranked Fencer in North America – Dr. Jane Littmann.

CFC members are beginners through advanced level fencers, including kids through adults. CFC meets at the Katie and Irwin Kahn Jewish Community Center, 306 Flora Dr., Columbia, SC 29223! Classes are held twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 PM. There is “Open Fencing” after that. No previous experience is needed. Most club members attend both days, but others attend only on Tuesdays or only on Thursdays.

You are welcome to visit and observe a class. It is a Fundamentals class. I adapt each class according to who is in it and their levels so that everyone will progress in his/her skills and enjoyment of the game. There is no charge to visit and observe, and no obligation to enroll. We accept new fencers throughout the month and year.

It’s a terrific sport for all ages! Our club and classes meet year ‘round. We sometimes have a “Meet-n-Eat-Out” night so those interested can catch a bite after fencing and get to know one another a little better.

Thanks so much for your interest. Please let me know if you have additional questions. You can contact me at JRL5837@yahoo.com or 803-781-0056.
