Awarded “Fencing Club of the Year” and “Best Fencing Club” by National Fencing Club Rankings, Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club, founded in 2010 by Olympian and U.S. Fencing Hall of Fame Inductee Dan Kellner, BBFC caters to students of all ages and experience levels. We have produced everything from Olympic and World Championship Medalists to National Champions and NCAA All-Americans. Our approach to teaching not only fosters athletic success, but also thoughtful, emotionally mature, and responsible people. Fencing is a metaphor for life, and through it we help our fencers learn about themselves, and how to handle the stresses of being a young person today.
