About Us

Cardiff Academy of Fencing is Wales' only dedicated Fencing Centre and hosts Russell Swords, a Cardiff based fencing club who run sessions across the city. The Academy is designed to offer excellent training facilities, specifically tailored to fencers and is one of only a handful of such venues in the entire UK.

The Academy is in use 7 days a week offering strength and conditioning or private lessons in the day and club sessions in the evenings. In addition to practical-fencing courses, we host courses in refereeing. coaching and armoury. The Academy also hosts a range of competitions throughout the year, details of which you can find on our Events Page.

The Future

Our plans for Cardiff Academy of Fencing are large and open ended. However, what is clear is that we want to develop an academy built on both competitive and social success. We want to see more members of The Academy competing at the highest of levels but we also want to create a place where families feel as much a part an integral part as the fencers themselves. We will always be as happy to welcome a social fencer as the world number one.
