The North Carolina Fencing Development Program ( NCFDP ) was directed by UNC Head
Coach, Ron Miller, and Duke University Head Coach, Alex Beguinet. Currently, NCFDP serves a
broader fencing development role for beginning through advanced fencers, and reaches fencers
primarily in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Its purpose is to provide people of all ages with
the opportunity to study and practice fencing.  The Program encourages recreational fencing and
provides training for serious competitors.  Want to learn to fence?  NCFDP has individual and
group lessons.

•        for beginning to advanced fencers
•        for recreational fencers or those who want to fence competitively
•        for fencers aged 8 to 80

NCFDP staff provides beginning fencers with instruction in foil and intermediate and advanced
fencers with instruction in any of the three traditional weapons: foil, epee, and sabre. Students
advance through 3 levels of instruction in groups, take private lessons if desired, and have the
opportunity to free-fence with other youth, collegiate, and adult fencers present during the club

Fencing Club is held for all 3 weapons (foil, epee, and saber) at Fetzer Gym room # 07 on the
campus of the University of North Carolina on Tuesday and Thursday nights starting at 7:00 p.m.  
Club runs from 7 pm to 10 pm during the Fall and Spring semesters and 7 - 9 pm during exams
and summer session.  The club is closed from the end of summer session II until the beginning of
the Fall semester (typically the first three weeks of August).  You may free fence, take beginning
or intermediate group lessons, or take intermediate or advanced private lessons.

We close on the same holidays as UNC. We also adhere to Orange County School weather
closings. If schools close, we close. If UNC closes, we close. Check NCFDP group
announcements on Facebook for these alerts and other updates:

If you want to register for beginning or intermediate group lessons for the next session, please
email or just come by!   

Beginning group Lessons are on Thursdays. Advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced
group lessons are on Tuesdays.

Individual lessons and open bouting are on both nights.

In addition, Coach Ron Miller runs a day camp for youth in the summer, the first week after school
is out in June.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
