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!

This past weekend the yellow jacket fencing club made the trip down to Clemson for the Tiger Open. For some YJFC fencers this was the first tournament they had ever attended and for others this was one of many. It was a large tournament with each event consisting of at least 45 fencers. All of the yellow jacket fencers performed very well. There were many good finishes and exceptional bouts from everyone.
