Back Alley Fencing is committed to providing the Rochester community access to the Olympic sport of fencing in an encouraging and respectful environment. Fencing offers a total body work-out, developing flexibility, strength, power and endurance. The intensity can be moderated to accommodate individual needs and capacities. It also involves mental agility and discipline.

Opportunities are available to train for high levels of competition, to compete locally, and to participate recreationally. Recreational and competitive fencing is available for all age groups from age 6 through over 70.
