Austin Fencers Club was founded in 1992 by Maitre Eric Mallet, who grew up and trained as both a fencer and a fencing master in Paris, France. Since its founding, Austin Fencers Club has brought the timeless sport of fencing to hundreds of Austinites of all ages. Some of our fencers have achieved top results in national and international competition. Others simply enjoy fencing as a fun, fast-paced way to way to stay fit and to exercise both body and mind.
