Swordplay LA wants to make it easy for you to fence. That's why we proudly offer the most affordable fencing classes and private lessons in the Los Angeles and Burbank, California areas. Keep reading to learn about what we have to offer.
Membership dues allow you to use the club and our equipment during our operating hours. They also allow you to take lessons without having to pay a floor fee. We even have monthly payment plans that allow you to take as many Beginner/Intermediate Fencing Classes as you want.
● Unlimited Class Membership: $110
● Unlimited Class "Buddies" Membership: $90.00
● Standard Non-Class Membership: $60.00
● Standard Non-Class "Buddies" Membership: $50.00
If you want to try an hour-long class before committing to the unlimited membership, you can pay a $30 walk-in fee to participate.
Private Fencing Lessons
Our private lessons are paid for by the half-hour:
● Regular Private Fencing Lessons: $22.00
● Competition Private Fencing Lesson: $30.00
● Semi-Private Fencing Lesson: $17 per student
Students who pay monthly dues only have to pay those prices when they walk into the studio. Non-members must pay an additional $20 floor fee on top of the private lesson fees.
Intermediate/Advanced Fencing Classes
Intermediate/Advanced Fencing Classes are paid for by the half-hour ($13/half-hour), and you only have to pay for the amount of time that you attended. And if you do the entire class, you get the last half-hour free plus a twenty minute private session with the instructor!
Students who take our Intermediate/Advanced Fencing Classes are exempt from paying monthly dues if their total monthly attendance adds up to at least $60. Otherwise, they’ll be charged the remainder of the dues.
Open Fencing Sessions
Club members — including those who take the Intermediate/Advanced classes — can participate in open fencing for free. Non-members can participate by paying a $20 floor fee.

Our students get the most out of their training when they don't miss lessons. But we understand that life happens, so we won't charge you any late fees if you contact us at least 24 hours in advance to cancel a private lesson. We'll also waive our cancellation fee if you miss a lesson due to an illness or personal emergency. Otherwise, all cancellations made the day of a pre-scheduled private lesson require a $15 charge.
