NYFA BENEFITS

NYFA has been named Fencing Club of the Year and ranked #1 in the US in youth epee for the last two years per National Fencing Club Rankings.  Long Island & Brooklyn members will be part of the same great team that benefits from the professional training provided by our accomplished and dedicated coaches.  All members receive the same membership benefits, and are welcome to fence together at bouting practices in both locations, at our day camps, and at our popular sleep-away summer camps. They can also do make-ups at either club.

HIGH SCHOOL FENCING

Head coach Misha Mokretsov has been training  LI  fencers for years, including Nassau County Champions, Skyler Chin and Bennett Cohen. With a club on Long Island, we look forward to working with high school teams to help produce many more champions.  Call to discuss what we can offer to your squads.
