To enrich lives by developing each fencer to the best of their potential through our distinctive competitive and recreational fencing programs.
PA2FA’s unique methodology results from the cooperative interaction of American, Western European and Eastern European fencing coaches.
At PA2FA, we teach our fencer how to perform at optimal mental and physical levels. Therefore, PA2FA fencers are focused on learning, training and on performance improvement. Winning and success in competition then become a consequence of our unique approach and methodology rather that its main objective.
Our coaches are more than just experts in their field; they are also dedicated mentors who understand the individual needs of each fencer they train. They use their deep knowledge of the sport and their empathetic approach to inspire and motivate their athletes to achieve their full potential, while working with them to address their unique strengths and weaknesses and build a strong foundation for success.
“Paying attention to the athlete’s emotions, strengths and weaknesses is the responsibility of a good coach.”
