This class integrates intricate footwork, advanced weapon control, strategy and tactics, as well as the long-term self-discipline key to navigating a successful adolescence. Each fencer is encouraged to set their own personal and athletic goals, ranging from qualifying for a school team to competing at the national level to an opportunity for earning college scholarships. While always keeping the ultimate objective in mind, NAFA works individually with each of our athletes to help them reach their full potential.

At New Amsterdam Fencing Academy, we don’t just nurture athletes. We nurture kids. We motivate students to the peak of their own physical conditioning, speed, and strength, and foster the discipline that breeds winners on and off the fencing strip.
