The best foil fencing in Brooklyn!
BBFC is Top 3 in the U.S. in recruiting among Highly Selective Division 1 Colleges with NCAA Fencing Teams
Awarded “Fencing Club of the Year” and “Best Fencing Club” by National Fencing Club Rankings, Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club, founded in 2010 by Olympian and U.S. Fencing Hall of Fame Member Dan Kellner, BBFC caters to students of all ages and experience levels. We have produced everything from Olympic and World Championship Medalists to National Champions and NCAA All-Americans. Our approach to teaching not only fosters athletic success, but also thoughtful, emotionally mature, and responsible people. Fencing is a metaphor for life, and through it we help our fencers learn about themselves, and how to handle the stresses of being a young person today.
Congratulations to BBFC’s Marcus Mepstead on securing a qualification slot for the Tokyo Olympics representing Great Britain!
We follow all current Covid-19 guidelines and our staff is vaccinated.
Our summer fencing day camps are both a great introduction to the sport of fencing for children who have never fenced before and a way for more experienced fencers to improve their skills.
Fencers with no or little experience start with introductory private fencing lessons where they will learn the basics of footwork, bladework, plus the rules and etiquette of fencing.
