We believe in training that combines workouts and exercise with the incredible joy of learning and fun of the game. Our fencing camps and classes engage and motivate young people so that time flies and keeps them going on. Beginners will be amazed at how much they learned and improved their conditioning and fencing skills.
Our summer camps will be one of the highlight of your child’s summer school break. They will learn fencing, play fun and engaging developmental sport games, make friends and will have an incredible fun. They will come home tired and hungry from the daily activity, and all they will talk about on their way home and at the evening is who they scored touches against, how they tricked their opponents and how many wins they had. They would hardly wait till the next morning to return to their summer fencing camp. That’s our experience and that’s our promise.
Beginning fencers will acquire basic fencing skills, including footwork, blade work, and distance control, they will fence with electrical equipment and understand fencing etiquette, rules and sportsmanship. Of course, not everyone will chose fencing as their livelong sport after the camp, but everyone can claim that they know what fencing is and why it is a super cool sport.
We run fencing summer camps in our two San Francisco Bay Area locations: in Campbell, CA or in Sunnyvale, CA. Our facility in Sunnyvale is one of the biggest fencing clubs in the United States.
We are really honored to build a tremendous coaching team of world class and internationally recognizes coaches. It’s wonderful to see fencers learning and growing under the tutelage of these experienced and supportive coaches. AFM coaches have all kind of medals under their belt, they trained national teams, helped fencers to qualify to Olympics and they are true fencing masters. They are inspiration for all of their students. Part of the huge success of our training programs is our coaches great experience in tailoring training to specific level of skills and needs. Their short biographies are listed here.
