What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
With a 23,000 sq ft facility, we are one of the largest fencing facilities in the country.We boast Olympic level coaches and students that are National champions, US team members and medalists in all levels of competitions. We have been host to National state,local and NCAA championships.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
This deal is for students ages 7 to 17 with little to no previous fencing experience. It is a fun introductory course for kids who have imagined themselves as the fourth musketeer.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
It was my goal to bring this amazing sport to the Houston and surrounding areas. As a sport that encourages concentration, discipline and quick decision making , it can lead to improved academic performance and can build self esteem.
What do you love most about your job?
We love teaching the most challenging sport to both competitive and recreational fencers. We enjoy having a very diverse group of fencers and coaches. As the oldest and largest academy we have been the recipient of several awards for our outstanding coaching.
