Fencing at New Amsterdam Fencing Academy - Upper West Side New Amsterdam Fencing Academy - Upper West Side

At New Amsterdam Fencing Academy (NAFA), we stress the four complimentary elements in training a fencer: Group work (footwork and conditioning), individual lessons, practice bouting, and competitions.

NAFA offers classes for children of all ages. We also organize fencing birthday parties, school programs, and camps.

Weekly group fencing classes are the core of our program.  The group format fosters cohesion among club members, teaches good sportsmanship, and helps develop key social skills.

Programs:

  • Junior — program for students ages 13 to 18 up offers a two-hour class integrating intricate footwork, advanced weapon control, strategy and tactics, as well as the long-term self-discipline key to navigating a successful adolescence;
  • Youth — fencers aged 9 to 12 are ready to commit to an hour (Beginner) or two-hour long (Advanced) group class emphasizing the technical and the tactical aspects of the sport;
  • FIT Kids (Fencers In Training) — 6 to 8 year old beginning swordsmen engage in an hour-long class that uses the building blocks of competitive fencing to emphasize the importance of working together. First through third graders engage in games and exercises that focus on the development of hand-eye coordination, general fitness, and body movement. While playing with swords.

Kung Fu at Wu Mei Gongfu Wu Mei Gongfu

Sifu David Berman teaches Wu Mei Gongfu in the traditional manner: training is ongoing, with no sense of “semester”, and with new students entering the class at any time; all students, beginners through advanced players, study together, and instruction is given on an individual basis, depending on the needs of each student; there are no colored belts, no testing, no ranking, and students are encouraged to view their gongfu not as an accomplishment.
