Gryphon Fencing

About Us

The mission of GRYPHON Fencing is to encourage, promote, and develop modern sports fencing among young people and adults. For thousands of years, the mythical gryphon has symbolized the strength of the lion, the intelligence of the eagle, and the courage and nobility of both. As such, it is the ideal mascot for our fencing club.

Gryphon Fencer

Youth Fencer
strength Fencing promotes coordination, flexibility, muscle tone, and stamina. A dynamic and enjoyable physical exercise, it provides an excellent cardiovascular work-out.
Intelligence Fencing requires both observation and analysis of your opponent and the referee, so instruction emphasizes strategy, tactics, and the ability to think on your feet.
Integrity Fencing fosters personal discipline and good sportsmanship. Courtesy and adherence to the rules are important in making fencing a safe and fun activity for all participants.

Gryphon Fencing is a member club of the United States Fencing Association, the nonprofit organization that oversees amateur fencing in the USA including our Olympic fencing team.  Gryphon Fencing serves and supports amateur youth and adult fencers in the north Orange County area.
