Woodside Fencing Center, Inc. (WFC) was established in 1986 as a fun, family-oriented fencing school, club and training center. It is conveniently located in the heart of Woodside, Queens, N.Y. (take the #7 train or the LIRR to 61st Street-Woodside stop and walk to 57th Street).
We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced fencing classes for recreational fencing as well as competitive training for those who wish to participate and succeed in fencing tournaments.
WFC is a US Fencing Coaches Association Guild Academy and is certified to train USFCA Assistant Coaches. Woodside Fencing trains with all three competitive weapons: Épeé, Saber and Foil. Members of our Fencing Team have earned medals in all three weapons at national, regional and local tournaments.
For the past ten years, our staff has worked with the Sports and Arts School Foundation. We work in multiple capacity with SASF/NYC Department of Education Public School System: Champs, festivals, championship clubs, mentoring and summer programs. Our business consists of contracts with over thirty (30) New York City public schools.
WFC also trains and develops NYC physical education teachers towards satisfying their continuing education credits. WFC has also participated in fencing presentations for film production (most recently, a promotional video for the Olympics), as well as concept content for major corporations and community events/fairs.
The facility seemed dirty. Also, there was a lot of miscommunication between the instructors. It resulted in literally only 5 minutes of fencing at the very end. There was way too much time spent warming up.
Gabriel P. gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.
