About Our Club

Escrime du Lac Fencing Club (EDL)  is the premier fencing academy for the greater South Bend/Mishawaka area. Located in downtown Mishawaka, our facility has over 3,000 square feet of competitive space. We offer classes from beginning fencing classes to individual competitive instruction for fencers interested in becoming serious competitors.

EDL has a family like atmosphere that encourages every fencer to develop good sportsmanship and a positive attitude. Our staff of coaches are well-known regionally and nationally for their skill at leading students both on and off the strip. 

Each fall, EDL Fencing Club is host to the DeCicco Open, a regional fencing tournament.
