The Yarger Fencing Academy is contained within the Rising Phoenix Academy, but is a separate business.

John Yarger is the instructor of the fencing classes.  John was a very successful competitive fencer for the better part of two decades.  He brings his knowledge and experience to each class he teaches.  He earned the title of Prevost from the United States Fencing Coaches Association, and has been teaching fencing at the Academy since 1993.

The fencing class is held on Saturdays from 10:30 AM until noon.  The cost for one class is $20, and for a month is $60.

Children and adults are welcome.

Beginners should wear flexible athletic clothing, relatively flat athletic shoes, and a protective glove for their weapon hand.

Weapons and masks are available at the Academy, with the understanding that “If you break it you bought it.”
