Located in Midtown, the Manhattan Fencing Center was started in 2007 by U.S. Fencing Hall of Fame Maestro Yury Gelman. Fencing success has everything to do with the club and coaches. We pride ourselves on our exceptional facility, our world-class coaches and our dynamic programs. Our coaches are all world-class instructors who have coached and/or fenced at Olympic and National levels. They are well-versed in the latest pedagogical techniques in the sport of fencing and most have a Masters in Physical Education. Classes and lessons are designed to accommodate students of different ages and skill levels. Programs include: the Musketeer Club (ages 4-6); youth classes (ages 7-13); teen classes (ages 13-18); adult group classes; footwork and conditioning classes; competition classes; intermediate and elite classes; summer and winter training camps; international training camps and local tournaments.
