Intro Classes Available

We are an organization dedicated to the promotion of Olympic fencing, and the nurturing of athletic and mental prowess in fencers of all ages. Founded in 2002, our academy trains all those who come through our doors, from the casual recreational fencer to the competitive fencer with aspirations for National level success. Our programs extend throughout the entire Charlotte Metro-Area including Matthews, University City, Lake Norman, Davidson, Mooresville, and more.

Charlotte Fencing Academy embraces a philosophy centered on our three core values of Honor, Integrity, and Courage. These principles guide all that we do in teaching the sport of fencing, competing in tournaments, and our involvement within the community. In our over ten years of existence we have grown from a small local fencing club to a true Academy that is nationally recognized in its achievements both on the fencing strip and off.

Through strong competitive programs and experienced, accredited coaches, we have acquired over 25 National Medals in our ten years of existence, and have aided in sending a number of students to reputable colleges, many of whom are currently competing on the NCAA college circuit. As our Academy continues to grow, we look forward to training many more athletes whom will compete at the NCAA level and beyond.

Whether you’re a seasoned fencing veteran or simply someone wishing to try the sport, Charlotte Fencing Academy will provide the atmosphere necessary for you to fulfill any and all goals you wish to achieve in the sport of Fencing. Feel free to peruse our website, and call/email with any questions you may have. Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope to see you with a blade in your hand soon.
