New Amsterdam Fencing Academy’s Junior program for students ages 13-and-up includes more intricate footwork, advanced weapon control, strategy and tactics, as well as the long-term self-discipline key to navigating a successful adolescence. Each fencer is encouraged to set their own personal and athletic goals, ranging from qualifying for a school team to competing at the national level to an opportunity for earning college scholarships.  While always keeping the ultimate objective in mind, NAFA works individually with each of our athletes to help them reach their full potential.

We were extremely impressed with the level of expertise and professionalism that the NAFA coaches displayed every day. The quality of instruction within our fencing program improved, from day one.
