Welcome to The Fencing academy of philadelphia!

Fencing Classes Near Me

Founded in 1989 by Mark and Lara Masters, is dedicated to teaching the art of fencing to students between the ages of 8-80. Since its founding, the Fencing Academy of Philadelphia has produced 3 world champions, numerous national champions, senior, junior and cadet world team members, countless NCAA All-Americans, hobbyists, and more.

At the Academy, athletes develop a unique combination of fine and gross motor skills along with strategic and critical thinking. Our focus is on the personal development of each individual, and we strive to teach our athletes discipline and determination. Fencers are trained to think critically and creatively, to overcome adversity, to set goals, and to accomplish those goals. We look forward to seeing you on the fencing strip!

Why Fencing?

More than the physical attributes of speed, power, strength, balance, agility and endurance, fencing training enhances mental skills: concentration, determination, tactical thinking, pattern analysis, decision making and the courage to act; all of these are developed during training and under competitive pressure. A fencer is not just a physical athlete; speed and strength mean little if you don’t choose the correct moment to act.

A less physically gifted fencer can defeat a bigger, stronger opponent with superior tactical thinking. FAP’s training program is designed to systematically develop all the necessary qualities for a beginner to become a champion: in life and fencing.
