A life changing experience for our daughter

  5 of 5

Dennis and the team at the Phoenix Center have been a large contributor to our daughter becoming more focused, confident, and committed to both her training and helping her peers. The coaches have always been able to raise the bar to keep her progressing in a highly competitive sport. What we thought was going to be a summer activity has become and avenue to early college acceptance with an eye on the Olympics.

Terrific coaching, atmosphere and sport. We are extremely lucky to have this fun yet high level fencing school in our area.

Fencing = Fun

  5 of 5

When we enrolled our two boys ages 8 and 10 in Phoenix two years ago, we were just looking for a "winter sport." Little did we realize what a great sport fencing is year round. Dennis and Eric are terrific instructors and have taught our sons footwork, coordination, speed and strategy. So much happens during a match and it is over so quickly. The boys get a terrific workout each class and have learned so much during the past year. They have participated in several tournaments and understand that hard work really pays off. Everyone in the club is so friendly and the senior fencers are involved in teaching the younger students. We recommend Pheonix Fencing Club to any child that wants to try something new that will teach them lifelong skills and have fun at the same time. En Garde!

We couldn't be happier that our daughter really loves fencing and is now a motivated, serious fencer, and enormous credit for that must go to the wonderful, dedicated coaches at Phoenix. Thanks, Dennis and Eric!

Phoenix Center is fantatic

I can't speak highly enough about the Phoenix Center. Not only are the people there very nice, they are incredibly professional, talented, responsible and all-around good people. My son has benefited tremendously from his experience with the Phoenix Center, not only in terms of developing fencing skills, but also by being exposed to a very healthy relationship to competition and athletacism.

Fencing has definitely helped me grow into a confident and independent person. The team environment is completely open to all new comers and inclusive to all. I love the Phoenix Center like a home!
