at south london’s sabre fencing club

Brixton Sabre is south London’s specialist sabre fencing club. Our coach, Italian senior squad member, Paolo Gattavari gives one-to-one sabre lessons and runs sabre courses for beginners.
We’re a group of mixed ability sabre fencers who got together to provide a specialist sabre club in Brixton. We’re open to meeting any sabre fencers who want to join us for one off sessions or become part of the club.

We’re happy to welcome sabreurs to our Tuesday night sessions. We train every week and also compete in competitions.

Our club welcomes beginners so don’t worry if you’ve never fenced before. You don’t need to buy equipment. Just tell us you want to try it out and we’ll show you the basics in a fully insured beginners’ course.

We’re in Brixton Recreation Centre (SW9 8QQ) right beside Brixton tube and rail stations from 7.00pm-9.00pm on Tuesday nights.

Let’s GO

friendly.Fun.fitness.

experienced coach

Our coach, Paolo, was a member of the senior Italian squad and brings his dynamic energy to our sessions. He has an Italian accent but we’re trying to get him to speak like David Bowie. He makes us fight each other…which is kind of the reason we’re all here.

Sport & friends

We love to fence. We also like hanging out together. You’ll find a mixed group of men, women, young and old. Some of us have only been fencing a few months, others years. We like to mix it up.

spacious venue

We fence in the ground floor hall of the Better Gym, Brixton Recreation Centre. That means we have room to train, there are showers and changing rooms. It’s right next to Pop Brixton, so you’ll often see us there after fencing on a Tuesday night.

Why fencing

unique differenT fun

When you take up fencing, you’re not taking up any old sport. It takes a certain mindset and a way of thinking to face an opponent on the piste. Creative, energetic and fully engaging, fencing is a sport unlike any other.

fast

The tip of a sabre sword is the second fastest thing in sport after a speeding bullet.

Safe

The clothing is specially designed to keep you safe and protected.

intelligent

When you fence, you have to outwit your opponent. Think ahead, plan and play. A bit like chess, but moving fast… with a sword.

what They’re Saying

Brixton Testimonials

I started fencing a few months ago and already I am addicted. I thought It would take ages to learn the basics but I was holding a sword and fencing in my first session. I’ve tell everyone I meed that they have to try it.
Sophie

As an experienced veteran fencer for Northern Ireland I’ve wanted to have a sabre fencing club in South London for a long time. There’s nothing like this south of the river and for me, it’s my new fencing home.
Marc

I was given a fencing course as a present by my wife and I enjoyed it from the first session. It makes you move and think on your feet. I’ve found that as a club, we’re able to bring new people in and that helps keep us all on our toes.
