I have been with Manhattan Fencing for 10 years and hope to be with them for 10 more. Amazing team of coaches, owners and staff.
We have been to a few fencing schools in the area and this one stands out the most. This is the place to be if you are learning and want to improve.
Best school in the US!
Great place! Highly recommend it to everyone young and old!

The best! Worth the trip from DC to NYC every time
It is more than just a club, it becomes a family.
Great coaching staff and great facility. Would definitely recommend if you want to become a better fencer.
If you want to become an Olympian or just have fun learning the amazing sport of fencing then this is the place in NYC!
Our son attended the Pre-Summer National Camp and loved every minute of it! Coach Sergey is very knowledgeable and was very attentive to our child.
Brand new facilities. Just opened in their new space. The coaches are great. Most are former Olympians. The kids that fence there are fabulous. Nice group and extremely supportive of each other's successes. More...

My son fences here. Best coaches! Best kids! My son has found a family away from home! They work them to the best of their abilities! Couldn’t ask for a better club!
Switching to MFC when I was 14 was the best decision I’ve ever made! Not only did I become a better fencer, but I became a part of the family. I am grateful for all of the opportunities and experiences MFC has given me. More...
A home away from home! Manhattan Fencing Center not only teaches their students how to become world class athletes, but also teaches them character, confidence, and perseverance in all aspects of their lives. The lessons I learned after working with the MFC coaching staff for 9 years and counting, have helped me excel at Harvard University, both academically and athletically. I am incredibly thankful and indebted to everyone at this fencing center for shaping me into the person I am today. More...
Been an athlete my whole life, and have watched my son fence through high school so I decided to try something new. Adult fencing is the most intense, full body workout imaginable! Nothing like learning something completely new later in life to keep your brain and body active! Friendly, respectful, and knowledgeable coaches and adult fencing students! Can't wait to get better at this More...
Love this place..best club in a World...
Great atmosphere, great coaches, fun and driven students of all ages
Definitely the best choice in New York. Some of the coaches are multiple times Olympic coaches or world champions, so they clearly provide high expertise. You will find yourself in a friendly and yet professional environment in the heart of Manhattan. Fencing is a rapidly improving sport in the US, and MFC is home for many Olympic medalists. The coaches truly care about the children and their improvement. Not only ideal for beginners or professionals, but provides exciting leisure activities for adults as well. As fencing is a highly intellectual sport, before or after work practices are great for physical and mental conditioning as well. I have been a member for 4 years and I can't see such professionalism in any other clubs around. What's more important, kids and adults have a lot of fun during practices. More...
Manhattan Fencing Center is a great facility with amazing coaches and programs designed to help athletes reach new heights and achieve their goals. I've had a great experience working with Alexander Sourimto (sabre). He's incredibly enthusiastic about his work, and always pushes you to reach your best. Alexander is not only a higher caliber coach, but a great friend also. I am extremely happy to be training at MFC, and couldn't be happier than to have chose Alexander as a coach!!!!! More...
Our family has been associated with MFC for nearly a decade and it has introduced us to world of competitive fencing and coaching that few clubs can match. Whether you have a youth fencer looking for a new activity OR a competitive teenage fencer looking to work hard and be inspired by Olympians/World Medalists/NCAA Champions OR are 40+ and looking for one of the best Veteran programs in the country, MFC is a great place!

Manhattan Fencing has wonderful coaches who care deeply about the sport and the students. They work tirelessly to make us the best fencers we can possibly be, and I am beyond grateful that I can call MFC my home.
My son had a great experience! He had great coaches and made so many nice friends. Sadly we are moving abroad. We would have liked our son to continue Fencing at this wonderful establishment with world class coaches if we could! Thank you very much for everything. We will definitely rejoin if we are back in NYC!!! More...
Manhattan Fencing Center's coaches are the best- they're supportive, motivating, caring, great teachers, and amazing fencers. The environment is competitive, yet friendly, and you make a lot of connections there. I'd highly recommend this fencing facility. More...
I have been with Manhattan fencing for almost 10 years and they are undoubtedly the best club in the country. Not only did they help me get a full ride into college, they put me on three national teams, giving me the opportunity to represent my country. When I first got to Manhattan fencing I was an out of shape and unmotivated kid, but after a couple of months I found a competitive niche and really thrived. In addition, all the coaches are phenomenal and really care about you. They motivated me and pushed me, boosting my confidence and my desire to win. I would recommend this club to anyone. More...
My children joined MFC in February 2017 and they are happy with classes and private lessons. They are always on time. Instruction is at a high level. The coaches are themselves accomplished fencers. The club is good for beginner and advanced fencers. The club is clean, bright, and well maintained. The front desk is very professional. More...
Amazing place with pros who prepare kids and adults for Olympics. Very tallented honest teachers who really love what they do.
Great club for kids to learn fencing. We tried a few and this is where we will be staying! Amazing facility and coaches.
