Feedback from New Students

MY GIRLS HAD SO MUCH FUN AT THIS FENCING CAMP! THANKS CONSTANTINE, YOU'RE A GREAT COACH!


The experience was amazing. My son had a great time. The instruction was great. I highly recommend it.


My son really enjoyed this experience. Konstantine and Jack were great instructors! Strict enough to get stuff done, but relaxed enough to have fun. Konstantine was very respectful to the two girls in the class as well (ie. letting them go first, but not taking it easier on them then on the boys). Great job!


OMG! It was so much fun! I will be joining after the first of the year. I can't wait!
