Repeating his performance from September 2016, Encinitas Fencing Academy's Head Coach David "Lucky" Polakoski took first place in the opening tournament of the 2017-2018 season of the San Diego Cup Open series! 

The San Diego Cup is a series of tournaments held locally for Youth, Junior, and Senior fencers. Every year 6-8 events are held for each age group, and a points list is kept, with awards being given out to the points champions at the end of the season. Events are held at different clubs around the county, giving the "home team" fencers an easy chance to participate at their club and the "visiting" fencers to practice with those they normally wouldn't get to. 

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our 3rd annual Pre-Season Competitive Summer Camp with Coach Aaron Kandlik! This camp has helped many fencers develop great habits and learn new concepts, as well as have a lot of fun.
 
This is a week-long camp that will have fencers doing drills, playing games, and practicing fencing in order to gain skills that will help them become better fencers, better students, and better competitors. Even despite the heat wave last year, all our fencers had a great time at the camp and showed marked improvement afterwards. Not only is it a great chance to learn, it's a chance to have fun with and better know your clubmates!
 
With the end of the fencing season and the arrival of summer, we’re picking up one of EFA’s greatest traditions: Dusk Patrol! Until the end of August, we will be ending practice at 7 pm sharp to head over to Cardiff to surf until the sun sets. The surf is generally mild, so all skill levels are welcome, even those who are new to surfing. While Wednesday practices are closed, all are welcome to join in surfing, so invite your friends to come along.
 
See you at the beach!

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a beginner camp from December 19th-23rd. Learn to defend yourself from your lightsaber-wielding siblings during the Christmas break! 

Over the course of the week-long session, new students will be introduced to the basic techniques and concepts of modern Olympic Fencing, and by the end will be able to compete with their campmates in bouts.
