About the School

The Nelson School of Arms is devoted to teaching the art and science of classical fencing. As an instructor certified by the Martinez Academy of Arms, Instructor Nelson is part of a living tradition committed to preserving the practice of fencing as a martial art.

Classical fencing is concerned with developing a student’s practical and theoretical understanding of fencing techniques and tactics. Instruction is suitable for all ages and abilities, and is currently available in the form of private lessons. Lessons take place by appointment either at the Joslyn Center in Alhambra, CA, or the 3rd Street Theatre in Los Angeles. To inquire further, or to set up a time for a lesson, please send an email to instructor@nelsonfencingschool.com.
