About cfc

The Cambridge Fencing Center, LLC has been designed to create opportunities for men, women, and children of all ages to learn an excellent Olympic sport. Fencing classes, practices, and individual lessons will be led by a renowned set of coaches with international experience including the varsity head coaches of MIT and Harvard University. CFC practices are held at MIT's DuPont Athletic Center Fencing Room in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This state of the art facility is one of the best, if not the best, fencing rooms in the Nation. It is equipped with 12 grounded strips, embedded into to the environmentally smart-designed floor system with consistent shock absorption to reduce injuries to athletes. A computerized scoring system, with the signaling units placed on each end of the strip and above, allows fencers to see the scoring lights without being distracted from their opponent. A wide angle video camera, connected to a DVR, permits recording of entire practices, and allows reviewing selected fragments on a wall-mounted 50 inch screen monitor. Locker rooms with showers are conveniently located on the first floor, immediately underneath the Fencing Room. Daily locker rentals and towel service are available for a fee.
