Okanagan Freestyle Fencing
Fencing Throughout The Okanagan
About Okanagan Freestyle Fencing
Okanagan Freestyle Fencing (OFF) was established in 2008. Head coach Matt Clarke decided to share his passion and love for the sport he spent years doing in Vernon, and spread it to others throughout the Okanagan. With over 25 years of experience in the sport, Coach Matt has built OFF into a thriving fencing club, with classes in Kelowna and Vernon.
OFF takes pride in teaching athletes of all types, whether you are looking for some fun recreation, want to become a high-level competitor, or something in between. Fencing is an exciting sport that improves cardio, strength, balance, and eye-hand coordination.
Fencing is often called physical chess, as it involves the same aspects of focus, strategy, and decision making. These mental aspects of the sport help our athletes to become confident and disciplined. A heavy emphasis on sportsmanship and respect for other athletes is another key factor of our philosophy.
OFF offers programs for athletes of all ages, abilities, and fitness levels. We offer school PE class programs, private parties, regular scheduled fencing classes, and other opportunities to enjoy fencing.
OFF is a family-oriented, safe, fun, and passionate club. We have athletes who come from all over the Okanagan and from around the world. We welcome you to come in and see for yourself the passion and drive that makes this one of the fastest growing sports. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
