The Fifth Circle

The 5th Circle is an all blades fencing club open to all UArts students, faculty, and staff. The mission of the club is to teach and help members develop the necessary skills and discipline for learning the art and competitive craft of athletic fencing, all within a challenging and relaxing environment.

The 5th Circle conducts open instructional workshops twice a week, and holds competitive fencing tournaments once a semester. In every competition fencers contend for bronze, silver, and gold medals. All equipment and workshops are free, however students are encouraged to acquire their own personal equipment to further supplement their learning experience.
