Join us for a Veteran Sabre Weekend at the Jersey Shore. We welcome all enthusiastic friends - Recreational and Competitive athletes alike - for drills, bouting, and fellowship!

All Veteran Sabre Fencers are invited to Atlantic Fencing Academy for our Pre-Season Veteran Sabre Clinic! Our previous clinics have been very popular and well attended by fencers from across the country. This clinic will also partner with a Tri-State Veteran Cup event on Sunday - details to follow soon!

Our Weekend Vet Sabre Clinics bring together athletes for training, bouting, and fellowship. Taught by our experienced Sabre Coach, Fencing Master David Sierra, you will leave this weekend a better sabre fencer than you started! Maestro Sierra is committed to expanding access to training opportunities for Veteran Fencers, and brings a dynamic and exciting focus with a deep understanding of the modern game.

Maestro Sierra (also the Head Coach of the Division 1 NCAA program at Wagner College) has coached veteran age sabre athletes to more than 30 medals in North American Cups including multiple team championships.

Ages 35 and up. Full uniform and bouting equipment is required for participation. 

One-on-one lessons are available to participants in the clinic. Please email David Sierra - Sierra.sabre@gmail.com to reserve a spot.
