The official website and up-to-date information for West Coast Fencing Academy can be found at: www.WCFencingAcademy.com 


Our Mission is to nurture our young men and women with the sport of fencing and encourage the growth of honor, grace, and chivalry. We believe champions cultivate habits that help them succeed not only in sports but also in life.

West Coast Fencing Academy is headed by Coach Nick Kovalev, a three time Olympian who, with the help of Coach Gherman Stone, provides instructions ranging from recreational fencing to competitive fencing at the national level. To find out more about the fencing club coaches, please see our Fencing Coaches page on the West Coast Fencing Academy website.


West Coast Fencing Academy is located in Monrovia.  We are easily accessible from the 210, 110, and 134 freeways and a quick commute from South Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, Eagle Rock, San Marino, Alhambra, Arcadia, Monrovia, San Gabriel, Temple City, Monterey Park, La Canada, La Crescenta, and Glendale, promoting the sport of fencing to the greater San Gabriel and San Fernando valley.

We offer a 5400 square feet dedicated fencing school focusing on sabre.  We are open Monday thru Saturday and offer group fencing classes for kids ages from 6 to 18, private/semi-private fencing lessons for youth ages 6 to 18 and adults, and open fencing sessions. Fencing classes are open for registration.  Contact or call us at  (626) 437-7816.  


In addition to above classes, we run in-house competition classes for various age groups and we also host sabre fencing competitions at our facility featuring youth and adult fencers not only from our club but fencers from Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Diego County.

West Coast Fencing Academy also provides fencing equipment and services to those working on commercials, TV shows, movies, plays, web series, and other special projects.  Additional information can be found on our fencing equipment, gear & rentals shop page.
