Academy of Fencing Masters (AFM) is the USA’s largest fencing club, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in epee fencing. We offer fencing classes at all levels, from Beginners to Competitive, for school-age fencers and special programs for adults. AFM features two locations: Campbell and Sunnyvale.

AFM won four Club of Excellence Awards from the USA Fencing, the governing body of the sport of fencing in the USA, being the only club in the USA history to receive such price four times: in 2016, 2021, 2022, and 2023. AFM is a recipient of the Special Congressional Recognition Award for contributing to developing the sport of fencing in the country.

Our fencers are multiple winners of national and international competitions and the USA National Team members, making our club among the top 3 highest performing clubs at the national level.
