Why Fencing? Because it’s fun to stab your friends.



TFC has been training athletes in Tulsa since the early 1960s. Following founder Art Wade’s lead, TFC has maintained an active group of competitive and non-competitive, or recreational, fencers for over five decades. TFC offers a range of education and training classes that have proven to keep fencers of all ages challenged and interested in continuing their fencing studies and pursuing the more competitive aspects of the sport through local, regional and national tournaments. TFC is a member of the US Fencing Association, and is part of the Oklahoma Division of the US Fencing Association.
