Fencing Coaches at NYFA Camp 2016
Our camps are ideal for fencers ages 10 and up with at least 1 year of experience. We focus on intermediate and advanced competition training led by world-class coaches including NYFA’s Misha Mokretsov, Vivo’s Arpad Horvath, Medeo’s Yakov Danilenko,  Toronto’s Tim Svidnytsky, and Alliance’s Sergei Danilov. Among their students are World cup and National champions, National team members, NCAA college athletes, and many of today’s best youth fencers.  Top-ranked fencers will also be on staff to assist. USFA-sanctioned tournaments will put campers’ skills to the test.  Competitive fencers from all clubs are encouraged to join us and help make these summer epee camps the best in the country!  Read about last year’s camps: 2016 Summer Fencing Camp Success
