BREAKING NEWS! Defense Exercise and Fencing Combat are NOW IN TWO LOCATIONS to serve the entire Quad Cities better-- the former Tom's Fencing Club (Tomsfencingclub.com AND FencingCombat.com) and sword store in PV for over 12 years is still in E-PV/ D-H, and our NEW club for North and West students NOW OPEN at Summer's DanceWorks on Willow Creek/ Miller Valley.
ALL AGES WELCOME-- our students range from 3 to 93!
Welcome to your Quad Cities Blade Combat, Grappling and Self Defense site! Our club offers a wide variety of unique fencing and blade combat styles and weapons found all over the world, but not always in the US, including numerous sizes and combinations of blades, styles and types, from tiny pocket knives to Highland Dirks, Broadswords and Katanas. We are located in the Quad cities area near the Prescott Hospital as well as our old location in PV. (PV has moved from Valley to Main, email us for directions). Unique systems and safety are our primary value adds.
Our emphasis is on self defense, fitness, exercise, skill and unique blade types from dirk and dagger to traditional and not so traditional sword types, as well as grappling and Defense Exercise™ for those under 18. We do NOT train for Olympic or "sports" competition. We DO offer scoring systems and training feedback not found anywhere else in the State, from mocap to video to Kinect, many of which are unique and proprietary.
Our former sword combat club on Valley Rd in PV trained for over 12 years, and we've now moved more centrally for residents of all the Quad cities with TWO locations. Check out the links at the top and bottom of any page for more information, or to schedule an appointment, demo and tour!
We also have one of the most unique collections of swords and other beautiful, rare and custom blades in the world, on display at our fencing equipment store East of PV (new East Club location). Click HERE for a few pictures of the shop!
HOW DO I START?
The easiest way is to try a single private orientation lesson - clinic ($30) for adult knife combat, or a group / semi-private grappling - self defense clinic for kids. You can sign up at either club location, or just call us at (928) 830-8467 to schedule. We also offer group clinics and seminars for clubs, organizations, gyms, dojos, schools, churches, LE departments, etc. We offer special discounts and seminars - clinics for EMT's, Firefighters, UPS - FEDEX drivers, Teachers, Pilots, Nurses and others at risk due to locations and situations where firearms are generally not available due to company or other regulations, yet the environment is dangerous. Most of these clinics are tax deductible. We also offer private knife fighting and defense training to other martial artists, black belts, bodyguards, court officers, judges, fencers, competitors, etc., some on a barter or exchange basis.
