I love the supportive environment and the quality of instruction. My son has been attending class and private sessions for about a year. His coordination has improved immensely and carries over to other sports. He has had several instructors all of whom have there on style, however parallel quality.

Great environment, everyone there is nice and really good at fencing so the training is intense. Highly recommend this place. And the cost is fair too.

One of the boys I nanny for fences twice a week with the Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club and loves it! There is a real culture of community and familiarity in the club--everyone knows each other and everyone is welcome. The coaches are very attentive, delivering individualized attention and dedicated coaching. Great experience!

BBFC is awesome. I totally trust the staff here. The environment is wonderful. My son continues learning a lot about fencing, but also about being disciplined and a good team member.

An encouraging learning environment in which students from beginner up through some of the most competitive in the country have the opportunity to develop and hone their fencing skills. The camaraderie and respect amongst the fencers is a testament to the positive tone that is set by the coaches here. The perfect balance between competitiveness and sportsmanship, fun and seriousness is established at BBFC. Many world-renowned foil fencers train here when in town or in preparation for upcoming events.

The atmosphere at Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club is extremely friendly and welcoming. All of the students have wonderful, attitude-free personalities. The older students willingly fence with the younger ones, as they work to improve their skills. One of the best aspects of Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club is that there are often fencers from other clubs visiting to take classes and for open bouting; sometimes even Olympic fencers from other countries. This offers the BBFC fencers exposure to other styles to which they can apply coach Dan's techniques.

Fantastic place for fencers at all levels, from beginners to world-class. Dan and his coaches take an individualized approach to every student regardless of goals or experience. The vibe is cool and not overly intense; the students and coaches take their sport seriously, but everyone supports one another. The older kids take the initiative to help the younger kids and everyone has fun. If you're looking for a club with the rigor of a Soviet-Union-era sports factory, this isn't the one, but if you want a place where your fencer can learn at his or her own pace while having the opportunity to fence alongside some of the best fencers in the USA, you'll love it here.

A fantastic fencing club with extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. The fencing is at a very high caliber, there are few foil clubs that could rival this one on the East Coast. Classes are well organized, plenty of strips to fence on, the coaches promote a very healthy athletic environment.

My daughter and son have been fencing at BBF for 3 years. They both love it. I have been so impressed with how thoughtfully Dan runs the club. At tournaments the team members are so supportive of each other and I haven't seen other clubs act in the same gracious manner. Every coach is extremely knowledgeable of the sport and takes s keen interest in their students. Henry Kenard, one of the coaches, has helped my daughter Lucy work through successes and set backs both in regular training and at competitions. I am grateful this place exists.

Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club is an amazing place. My son has been going for several years after school and loves it. The instructors are terrific and so supportive of his learning. I love the low-key atmosphere and focus on sportsmanship. A secret gem to learn this beautiful sport in Brooklyn!

Fantastic environment for athletic and intellectual development of fencers of all skill levels. The balance between independent activity (kids quickly learn to organize and judge all the bouts, with the top-flight coaches nearby to assist) and personal instruction (individual lessons are part of every session) is superbly managed by Dan and his team. Friendly, busy, and just a lot of fun--the best part of my daughter's week.

We love coach Dan Kellner and the Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club. My 8 yr-old has fun and learns the intricacies of foil fencing at the same time. There are a lot of older (and high-performing) fencers at the club, but the coaches always have enough time to look after and properly instruct the younger kids.

An amazing club for fencers of all ages who are determined to compete at the highest level. Within its collegial but serious atmosphere, the club fosters discipline, sportsmanship, and, perhaps most important, an enduring passion for this most elegant and intellectually challenging sport.
