Northwest Fencing Center
Oregon’s premier location for epee and foil fencing
Northwest Fencing Center (NWFC) is a non-profit fencing training facility specializing in foil and epee. Since 1972, we have provided people of all ages with affordable fencing classes, camps, and private lessons.
NWFC began as a group of dedicated fencing athletes and quickly grew to become a pioneer of fencing in Oregon. Today, we continue to grow and are known as an international training and competition hub.
In 2022, we moved to our new facility in Tigard, Oregon, designed and built just for us. With 21 strips, a cushioned flooring system, and all-new gear, we can’t wait to see where this step takes us next.
Our Coaches and Administrative Staff are dedicated to providing a supportive, inspiring, and fun atmosphere. Our goal is to foster a love of the sport and the growth of the athlete, both on the strip and off.
At NWFC, we are a community of friends, colleagues, and athletes. We are committed to providing the best possible instruction for you or your athlete in an encouraging, yet challenging environment.
Together, we can grow the sport of fencing. Donate today to give an athlete the opportunity to join our community.

After trying soccer and basketball, Michael Stavreff finally found the sport that he is passionate about. He has been training at NWFC since 6th grade and embraced and enjoyed every moment on the strip. Michael plans to continue practicing the sport during his college years, applying all the knowledge, discipline, hard work, and dedication he learned at NWFC.
Amelia Nason found fencing in sixth grade after trying nearly every other sport and finding she didn’t care for catching, throwing, or running. Instead, the fencing center in Beaverton with a curiously named “Pit of Despair,” which demanded an entirely different skill set, captivated her for all of middle and high school.
