SDFC coaches are dedicated to promoting the Olympic sport of fencing by developing athletic and critical-thinking skills, including coordination, creative thinking, the use of strategy, and much more. Such skills carry over into everyday life, helping adults and children maintain a healthy lifestyle and have fun.

We have selected a highly professional and internationally trained team of coaches to meet our goals of educating all SDFC members and helping all levels of fencers excel.​​

Our coaching and administrative team always has safety and performance in mind. All SDFC coaches are professional members of the U.S. Fencing Association and have successfully completed background checks and SafeSport training.
