Our goal is to create an inclusive fencing environment, a united community fit for the Olympic hopeful through the recreational fencer.Unlike the more classical American program which focuses often exclusively on individual coach-student relationships, our new model provides a community of coaches who have a vested interest in each and every student. Empire United emphasizes an integrative, group approach to its training system. Students in all of the offered programs benefit from the insight and attention of our entire coaching staff. Empire United’s cohesive approach translates into an enriched, structured training environment conducive to the growth of both our fencer’s skill and overall enjoyment of the sport.
Empire United Fencing fosters the pursuit of personal excellence and enrichment for the student who has experienced the excitement of the strip for a few weeks or many years. We envision the development of Olympic champions, yet understand that the realization of each student’s potential is the ultimate goal. One key to achieving this goal is a proactive relationship between the coaching staff and the parent. Parents become community members with a thorough understanding of the “Blueprint” for their child’s development.
Unique to our approach is the prioritization of physical, mental, and body awareness skills that promote lifelong discovery. In addition to the youth program, all adult and collegiate fencers will be welcomed as a valued member of the community, with programs tailored to their individual needs for continued progression.
