    Olympic Fencing Gym?

    Hey all!

    I am looking for an olympic-style fencing gym that is easy to get in to here in HK. I have done similar styles of fencing before with heavy rapiers, but am relatively new to Olympic fencing (foils, epee, sabre.)

    I want to find a gym where I could either buy or rent equipment and practice on a fairly regular basis. Ideally something somewhat beginner-friendly, though I don't mind getting thrashed if I learn from it.

    I have looked online, but most of the sites are in Chinese, or have very little information on the membership costs, gym availability, practices, etc...

    Can anyone help me out?
    Cheers!

    Thanks for your reply!

    I checked out the website, it looks like that is more a set number of classes, geared towards children from like 7-17.

    I am looking for more of an ongoing gym, maybe with pickup match or "open gym" times where I can go to spar.

    Additionally, I am 23, so ideally I would have older opponents.

    Any other suggestions?

    Not from me! That's the only place I could think of.

    On second thoughts why don't you call them and ask, if anyone knows, they will.

    I've trained sabre there ages ago. Not a bad club. It's in TST.
