  • 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.

  • A great place for fencing. Very dedicated coaches and gives detailed corrections to each child. This is a coach with a heart. Pro competition but makes it a point to consider the kids psychological preparedness also.

  • I heard about Fortune Fencing from the radio and wondering if it’s too late for my 13 years old son to start learning fencing. I took my son to try the class anyway . Coach Z is very nice and professional, he told me it was fun and he liked it. Now he moved to the competitive class. I’m glad to see all his efforts and improvements. It has boosted his confidence a lot too. Both Coach Emara and Coach Z are very attentive and professional, they will make sure everyone gets their skills improved based on their level. I’m glad that my son liked this new sport and made big progress. I’m live in city of walnut, but I’m willing to travel a little far to this place as long as my son enjoys it.

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.
