ASPIRE, COMMIT, AND CHASE YOUR DREAMS
Our younger fencers can pick their own path between competitive, and fence at local, regional and national tournaments, or recreational. Whether your dream is to become Olympic champion or to just enjoy and stay active in a great environment, SBFA is the place for you.
The advanced and elite class are designed specifically to perform at the highest levels. Our fencers compete in local, national and international tournaments. The training regime is designed to help each and every fencer to reach his or her best performance. For many of our fencers, their goal is to becoming national team members and represent their country and/or to get recruited by colleges such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale, or Stanford, to name a few.
"Fortis cadere caedere non potest"
