How to start fencing
We take in new fencers regularly in all our groups. Minimum age is 6 years for fencing and wheelchair fencing, 15 years for historical fencing and modern pentathlon. Check the Aloita miekkailu-page for information on the next courses. Children can join fencing groups after beginners courses which are organized three times per season. For adults there is a more rigid system with beginners courses taking place on the same day for several weeks or weekend beginners courses. To find out more contact us via email.
The OMS club
Oulun Miekkailuseura, or OMS for short, was established in 2002, and is currently the leading foil club in Finland, and has groups in foil, epée, sabre, historical fencing and modern pentathlon. Additionally we have some wheelchair fencers.
Our head coach Javier Menéndez represented Spain in the Beijing olympics and has now been working with us since summer 2013.
