The Yellow Jacket Fencing Club is the official Georgia Tech club for fencing, the sport of sword fighting! Founded in the Fall of 2004, the club has grown from a handful of members to well over 80 students and alumni! What hasn't changed is the common love for the sport and the camaraderie we share. No prior experience is necessary - most people first started fencing in the club!

  • Free beginner lessons for the first 3 weeks of each semester!
  • Choose from 3 weapons and travel the East Coast to compete in collegiate and United States Fencing Association (USFA) tournaments!
  • Hang out with fun-loving fencers in socials, ranging from gift exchanges, to a Murder Mystery Party, to team dinners and potlucks. Or invite some fencers for a late-night outing at Steak-'n-Shake!
  • Join a committee and learn how to fix weapons, plan social events, or be involved in one of the biggest tournaments in Georgia!
