Having been open for four years we offer a great coaching staff, which includes Eugene Nazarov - a professional fencing coach with over twenty years of national and international experience as well as some of our finest students: We offer a variety of programs towards all skill levels, from beginner to competition preparation. Beginners are usually grouped by age, but as training progresses, fencers are matched by skill level. In addition to ongoing training, there are summer camp programs, tournaments, and open fencing.
