Reviews of Nova Fencing Club
On September 6th, 2016 - Nova Fencing Club opened its doors at our permanent facility on the boarder of Arlington and Falls Church. In that year, we ranked 19T Nationally in Veteran Women's Epee, sent 2 fencers to the Junior Olympics, qualified 13 fencers for Summer Nationals, sent 3 fencers to 2 International Competitions, had 1 All American Academic First Team member, 1 High School All American Honorable Mention, the 3rd Place Y12 Region Points Leader, and had Coach Emik Kaidanov get inducted into the Fencing Hall of Fame. Most importantly we introduced the sport of fencing to new fencers of all ages, and made great friends while doing it.
