Welcome to the home of the Lightning Fencing Club in Winnipeg CANADA eh.

The Lightning Fencing Club was founded in 1993 by David and Patricia Howes.

The club started with a few members from the local military base, where David served at Air Command Headquarters. As time went by, the membership grew beyond the confines of a "base" club and extended its reach into the general population. At the club's peak it boasted a membership of over 100.

Patti moved to Kingston in 2002 and is the Head Coach of the Royal Military College of Canada fencing program.
David moved to Kingston in 2003 and founded Cutting Edge Fencing the same year.

The reigns of the Lightning Fencing Club were assumed by a club member, Alan McCracken, who still serves in that capacity today.
