Fencing is a sport unlike any other. A sport that appeals to girls every bit as much as boys, that can appeal to kids who have never found a passion for any other sport, that can be taken at any age and played for life.
Located in the Alewife section of Cambridge, Olympia Fencing Center it’s the only fencing club in the country to offer an innovative introduction to the Olympic sport of fencing.
Our programs are specially designed to teaching both beginner and advanced fencing, following the East European school of fencing.
In our process to starting a fencing revolution, we’re also the first club in New England to introduce junior fencing classes and competitions for children 4 to 8 years old!
Competitive fencing is one of the fastest-growing sports in North America, and, as witnessed by the sound of weapons clanging and people of all ages, lunging and parrying in our studio – Cambridge just might be the next home to an Olympic champion!
The Olympia Fencing Center coaching staff consists of world-class fencing masters and professional educators. All our instructors make learning fencing fun and enjoyable and aim to give our students a competitive edge on the strip.
Daniel Hondor, former Romanian National Champion, the Founder and Director of the club, has been teaching in the Cambridge area for eleven years. “To say fencing is my life is an understatement. I have literally been fencing my whole life and it’s my honor and privilege to teach the range of students I’ve been teaching.'

Olympia Fencing Center - A parents perspectiveFor the last year and a half my son has fenced at Olympia Fencing Center. I cannot speak highly enough of the coaching staff, facility, and overall spirit of the club. Coaches Daniel and Iliya are highly accomplished fencers themselves but more importantly extremely skilled at instructing, motivating, and mentoring their students. I have watched my son develop a love for a sport he previously knew nothing about. Olympia encourages all their members from novice to world class to become a part of their fencing family. My son and I highly recommend Olympia to anybody interested in learning more about the sport of fencing.
