This a a great fencing club. From the minute you walk in the club it looks like everyone is having fun. The coaches are awesome and very down to earth, they have 2 fencing masters who are both USA Hall of Famers. The times that I've been there I saw strong fencers in all 3 weapons and found out that many of them are nationally ranked. There was even an Olympic pentathlete from Romania teaching and training there. Can't beat the neighborhood, it's in Summerlin, safe and lots of parking space, the club is very well lit, bright and cheery. I don't know about the other clubs in this city but this club has active competitive fencing side by side with many of us recreational fencers. I surely felt great about signing up my son in the kids' program. Their coach is great with the kids and she is a former college NCAA All American. Every month it seems their kids come back from tournaments with medals, my son learns from them too and can see what he is working towards.

Fencing is a great sport but the Fencing Academy of Nevada ruins everything about it. The staff is very unfriendly and don't seem to want to teach you, and they only teach foil, no other weapons, even if you have already learned these other weapons. They are in the middle of the Sportspark and cannot be seen easily. They have only four strips that are so close to each other that there is no room to use them all. This place is extremely small and the changing room is more like a very, very small closet. The bathrooms are also a ways away from the actual fencing center. The students I have watched definately do not seem to be improving through the Fencing Academy's classes. If you are interested in fencing, check out other fencing centers in Las Vegas before you go here, even if you are close to the area. (Other centers: Red Rock Fencing Center, Salle de Nord)

How could that guy say those things about the place. Is it just because they dont do sabre..... The Fencing Academy of Nevada is wonderful. Probably the friendliest bunch of people in this soulless city. The staff are extremely nice and pleasant. The teachers are of very high quality...... What more can I say.. I have been to all the fencing centers in Las Vegas and unless you are lucifer you will love this place. The guy who wrote the extremely negative comment probably runs another center in Vegas, or is just plainly f@#@ed up in the head and should not be near children.....

So there you go.....

The Doctor

PROS: Everything, the staff, the positive attitude........ I could go on forever
CONS: The bathrooms.......

We were not pleased with this place in how it was run by the staff. The programs are not geared for good progress levels. We had to take our child out and go to a better place even though this place is real close to us. All they teach here is foil. The new place we went to teaches all three blades to all age levels. (Our child loves saber.) It's the only place in Vegas that teaches all three blades. My recomendation is to look around first before just going to Fencing Academy.

PROS: close to my home
CONS: small place, not friendly staff, no programs for advancement
