About Us

Founded in 2005, Fioretto Fencing Academy is home to many who have discovered and nurtured a lifelong love of fencing.  The club has trained top competitors in the sport, but believes also in ensuring that young fencers apply lessons learned on the fencing strip to life: self-discipline;  good sportsmanship;  and honing the skills of analyzing complex situations and making good decisions quickly. Join us, and find out why fencing is one of only five sports contested at every Olympic Games since 1896 – practiced by both the young and young-at-heart!
