The Fine Print
About LionHeart Academy
Upon LionHeart Academy's floated rubberized floors, fencers of all experience levels from age 7 to adulthood cross blades under the guidance of British Academy of Fencing–certified maestro Stuart Lee and his staff. Their curricula teach the sport's physical aspects, including agility, strength, and tactical thinking, while emphasizing the ideals of sportsmanship, respect, and self-control, discouraging students from humiliating their opponents with pointed dis raps. The center, which received recognition and an award in Best of San Diego 2015, arms fencers with the necessary equipment and peddles weapons, uniforms, and protective gear from the Fencing Post for those who wish to purchase their own.
