Welcome to our Academy


"Fencing is the thrilling sound of steel meeting steel. It is the sweet taste of victory and the personal growth accompanying both victory and defeat. Become involved in fencing--it will help you acquire the reflexes of a boxer, the legs of a high jumper, and the concentration of a tournament chess player. The sport develops your agility, strength, speed, and cunning. Because it is action-packed, it is known as the fastest martial art. But the best thing about fencing is- IT'S FUN!"

United States Fencing Association




We offer Summer Camps for everyone: from beginners to advanced athletes, ages 6 and up. Experienced fencers will sharpen and perfect their skills, while beginners will be introduced to all three weapons (epee, foil, and sabre) and learn the fundamentals of this beautiful sport.

Our amazing team of international coaches provides wonderful experience for kids who are looking to stay active during summer months.
