We are Fortune Fencing

Based in Monrovia California, Our fencing masters provide classes for all ages and all levels of experience, from beginners to advanced competitors.

We strive to make the fencing experience enjoyable for all ages. Fencing is a fast and athletic sport, a far cry from the choreographed fights you see in the movies or on the stage. Instead of swinging from a chandelier or leaping from balconies, you will see two fencers performing an intense bout of wit, strength, and stamina.



One of the possible qualification paths for Youth 10 and Youth 12 events at both the March NAC and the Y10, Y12 and Y14 USA Fencing National Championships.

  • We have been members at Fortune Fencing for over 8 years. Our three sons have been training with Coach Emara and Coach Z. They're phenomenal! They are greatly involved, truly love fencing, and enjoy helping all fencers achieve their best. Their students are happy and challenged. Students say that the coaches not only help them improve in fencing, but grow as a person too. I actively see growth in my sons' abilities. I also love the honesty and integrity of this exceptional place. I cannot recommend Fortune Fencing enough!

  • Like any other motor movement , I had my son trained at 7-years-old to fence (from gross movements to fine movements ) — because I desperately needed a sustainable therapy to cure my son’s increasing symptoms of attention-deficit syndromes. Fencing worked! My son had a great line of dedicated coaches and I am grateful to them all. He’s 11 now (pre-teen) and the encouragement is necessary from peers — Fortune has given Ian friendships and Ian’s strip coach (Zeyad) uses the parameters of the sport to train concentration, focus, and patience. The pedagogy of fencing is Fortune’s strength: Coach Emara serves a platform for coaches’ clinics, and Coach Zeyad coached collegiate fencing. The Fortune coaches are educators and fulfill the fencers’ schooling through socio-emotional development and cognitive-behavioral health. My son has had beautiful bonds to all of his coaches in different gyms, but Fortune as a community took us into their home when I became a single-mom.

  • If you are looking for a reliable fencing academy, I recommend Fortune Fencing, Monrovia. My child doesn't exercise steadily, but coach Emara and coach Zeyad continue to teach according to the individual tendencies and characteristics of the students.

    We have been attending the Fortune fencing for more than 3 years before and during the COVID-19.

    믿을 만한 펜싱 아카데미를 찾고 있다면 Monrovia에 있는 Fortune Fencing을 추천합니다. 저희 아이는 운동을 꾸준히 하지 않지만, 두분에 코치께서 학생들의 개별 성향과 특성에 맞게 가르켜수셔서 저희는 3년 이상 다니고 있습니다.

  • I took my 11 years old grandson today for a free trial at the Fortune Fencing. We met coach Emara and coach Ziyad, both are kind and respectful and make teaching fun. All kids are friendly and seem to be enjoying the sports very much. We purchased private lessons package, and purchased the full gear. Can’t wait for the 2nd class. Thank you coach Emara and coach Ziyad.

  • The best fencing club in the San Gabriel Valley! The instruction is world class and the students are exceptional. My boys both started with no experience five years ago and are now competing on a national level. The club has multiple national champions and at least one member on the US team. As an adult beginner, the coaches have been patient and helpful. If you have ever wanted to try fencing for yourself or your kids, give fortune a try!
