The coaching staff at North Shore Fencers Club has serious pedigree. The three coaches have more than 70 years of combined experience in the sport, marked by career highlights such as coaching the national teams of Russia, Belarus, and Estonia, and winning NCAA championships in 2010 and 2011. The sword-clinking coaches groom students as young as 7 to pursue the same level of success in the weapons of épée and foil—or, to at least improve their fitness, coordination, and confidence.
Lessons range from beginner classes for first-timers to private lessons for ambitious fencers looking to take their skills to the next level. More casual participants can also get in on the action through open fencing sessions and recreational camps.
