Cheney Fencing was founded in 2011 by Michael Kelley who had a vision to provide Chris Cheney with a way to teach the sport he loves. Michael Kelley passed away in 2014 but his vision of community and character development lives on in the heart of Cheney Fencing to continue to grow and impact the community in a positive, meaningful way.
