Olympia Fencing Academy

Olympia Fencing Academy’s seasoned squad of coaches and trainers imbues swashbuckling pupils with the skills and support necessary to brandish their blades all the way from the classroom to competition. Head coach Sean Horan has represented the USA as a competitor and taught NCAA fencers at Stevens Institute of Technology and the Air Force fencing team. Horan's students have also competed and won medals on the national and international level. Coach Glenn MacDonald harnesses his training with five-time Olympian Michael Marx to improve his students' lunges and olive-skewering strategies, and coach Patrick Reardon is a highly rated referee and medalist. Staffers stay abreast of annual national tournaments and often teach a number of apprentices who go on to enter the U.S. National Fencing Competition each year. In addition to in-house training, Olympia Fencing Academy supports community outreach and education programs with school fencing lessons, field trips, and dueling-swordfish demonstrations.
