More About The Fencers Academy

How We Got Here and Our Mission

The Fencers Academy is a club dedicated to teaching and promoting the sport of fencing. We were founded by our Head Coach Hossam Hassan and his family in 2009 and have produced nationally and internationally ranked fencers through out the years. Some of our fencers went on and continued the sport of fencing in Ivy league colleges and continue to compete in national, international, and NCAA fencing competitions.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of instructions for the sport of modern fencing, as well as promote the social and athletic interaction of its members through fencing competitions. We want to preserve the history and tradition of fencing in the US and expand the base of support for our community by actively offering fencing related community outreach programs in schools and local summer camps. Our club actively works on hosting more local tournaments for our members to improve and expand their knowledge of fencing and its competitive side.
