There are a numerous reasons why Cheyenne is the best Denver fencing club. Cheyenne is the club in Denver that puts the student fencer 1st, people before profits and is serious about our students presenting their best selves to the fencing and outside world.

You will notice how we are different when you go to outside competitions and see that others that don't come from Cheyenne Fencing Club often behave badly and disrespectful. Elaine is adamant that her students are goods sports and respectful at all times. Isn't that what you want for your kids?

This was in the midst of her successful fencing career competing at the olympic level  for over another decade after opening the club.  See more about Elaine here.

The History of Cheyenne Fencing Club - The best Denver fencing club


The Cheyenne Fencing Society and Modern Pentathlon Center was founded in 1981 by current owner and Olympian, Elaine Cheris.  After many successful years on the U.S. Fencing team and U.S. Olympic Fencing team, Elaine wanted to share this wonderful sport with the Denver community.


The goal was to create a place where everyone could learn the sport of fencing from beginners, to adults looking for recreation, to aspiring Olympic athletes. We encourage recreational participation as well as those looking for a competitive outlet. We welcome anyone who wants to come down and watch this fascinating sport!


Growing up, Elaine was a collegiate track star and accomplished swimmer.  Unfortunately, during those times women did not have a lot of access into the world of pentathlon, so Elaine's career as a pentathlete was cut short. She has now dedicated many years of service to the promotion of pentathlon in the U.S.A. and works hard to ensure that anyone wishing to pursue the fencing sport or modern pentathlon does not face the same challenges she faced.
