In the heart of Oakland at the junction of hills, lake and flatlands lives the United Fencers of Oakland . 

UFO is dedicated to teaching the art of fencing in an innovative and comprehensive way. Combining physical fitness, competition, intellectual focus, elegance and fun, UFO aims to honor each individual's experience while also providing a learning atmosphere of mutual respect.  

Specializing in Saber, the club offers a unique education and is one of the few studios in Northern California to focus on that sword. Individual lessons are still available for epee and foil.


UFO welcomes all ages and skill levels, from children to adults and from beginners to those with Olympics dreams.
