Are your kids always dueling with toy swords or sticks? Put those sword
fighting instincts to good use in a fencing class! Maryland Fencing Club is
the only fencing club in Harford County and one of the top clubs in the
state. An Olympic sport since the first modern games in 1896 and an NCAA
sport since 1941, fencing evolved from 16th century European sword
dueling. It combines the speed of boxing, the strategy of chess, and the
agility of gymnastics. Head coach and club owner Greg Paye has been
fencing for over 30 years, and teaching in Harford county since 2007. He is
also an assistant coach at Johns Hopkins University. Group classes and
private instruction are offered for ages 8 through adult. To learn more
about Maryland Fencing Club and the sport of fencing, check out their open
house Friday, Aug. 30, 5pm to 6pm or Saturday, Aug. 31, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., or
