About Us

Black Hills Fencing Club was founded in 2003 by Dr. Jeff McGough and a group of home-school students.  The students wanted to learn fencing, and when they discovered he had coached fencing before, they convinced him to teach them the basics.  The students loved the sport, and they wanted to continue beyond the beginners class that he originally taught.  He established club to allow the students an opportunity to continue fencing and to provide a place for other fencers in the area to practice.
