We are excited to announce that in just a few weeks, we will be relocating upstairs to a larger, fully renovated facility to accommodate our growing family of fencers. The new club will feature a 3,000 square-foot gym with 6 fencing strips, state-of-the-art equipment, new floors, new heating and air conditioning, windows, locker rooms, and a spectator area with Wi-Fi and TV.  NYFA will still be conveniently located at 2896 W 12th Street in Brooklyn, NY.

Meanwhile, classes are off to a great start at our current location and registration is ongoing. Check out our schedule of epee & foil classes, introductory & member packages, and membership plans.
