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

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.

Currently, Lightning Fencing Club is the largest fencing club in Manitoba. We are the only club to instruct in all three disciplines (epee, saber and foil) at all ages. We have an armband program for our younger members to assist them in developing their knowledge and physical skills.

At Lightning we have a strong coaching team comprising a head coach and three senior coaches. We have a dedicated and wonderful group of junior coaches that volunteer their time to assist the younger and less experienced fencers. Lighting is built on a concept of community and team work.
