Since its foundation in 2003, Los Angeles International Fencing Center’s coaches—some of whom have competed at the Olympic level—have enhanced the repertoires of novices and recent Olympians alike. In the studio’s supportive learning environment, fencers of all ages and skill levels don protective leather gloves and masks before learning to wield weapons such as the lightweight foil and the hefty épée. The complementary curriculum places heavy emphasis on strength and footwork, ensuring that pupils can deliver parries and thrusts even while sparring against square dancers armed with fiddle bows.
With 30 years' experience choreographing fight sequences for television and film, competitive-fencing instructor Tim Weske leads SwordPlay Fencing Studio's intrepid teachers in demystifying the art of the sword for students. His combat choreography sequences have touched films and TV shows as diverse as I Love You, Man and Angel, and he has safely instructed celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Brad Pitt to convincingly parry with their onscreen opponents and dual for red-carpet supremacy.
At SwordPlay Fencing Studio, once-a-week group sessions or private lessons in foil, épée, and saber provide pupils with fun workouts by engaging minds with subtle strategy while burning calories, increasing agility, and building muscle tone. Afternoon and evening sessions are held Monday through Saturday to fit hectic jobs and busy mornings repainting the neighbors' lawn flamingos.

Salle D’Asaro Fencing Club head coach Michael D’Asaro Jr. trains his students for success, preparing many former students to compete on NCAA fencing teams at the top colleges and universities. He helps them achieve this goal by demanding a high level of dedication—the same kind of dedication he has put into his own career. The son of legendary fencer and club founder Michael D’Asaro Sr., D’Asaro spent his youth swiftly ascending to the 1996 U.S. Olympic men’s saber team. He now coaches in foil, épée, and saber techniques, leading group lessons replete with drills and practice bouts as well as private sessions ideal for getting more one-on-one guidance.
