Under the guidance of former Soviet national fencing champion Vladimir Ostatnigrosh, swordplay camps introduce children aged 8 and older to the basic tenets of the sport, such as footwork, sword techniques, and strategy. Though students should bring water or sports drinks to stay hydrated, tuition covers daily healthy snacks and necessary equipment, including masks, jackets, gloves, and sparring weapons. Lessons run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.

Classes range from introductory to competitive levels, and cover the three Olympic fencing weapons: the foil, the épée, and the saber. The introductory session consists of four one-hour classes beginning the first Friday of each month that cover the history, rules, and techniques of fencing. The session is good for all ages.

Fresno Fencing Academy

At Fresno Fencing Academy, head coach and former Soviet and Ukrainian champion fencer, Vladimir Ostatnigrosh, distills his experience to foster a new generation of duelers within a 4,200-square-foot facility that boasts electric fencing strips, a fitness room with weight machines, and changing rooms. Ostatnigrosh invites students of all levels, aged 7 and older, to discover the art of parrying and thrusting, which nurtures self-discipline while bolstering the cardiovascular system and developing the skills necessary to retrieve stolen lunch money from Zorro. The academy’s classes, which range from introductory to competitive levels, cover the three Olympic fencing weapons: the foil, the épée, and the saber. Those expert swordsmen and swordswomen who have mastered the fencing rules and refrained from detonating any last-resort grenades during a match defend the academy’s robust reputation at local, regional, and national tournaments.
