Kaizen Academy, LLC ("kai. zn") is a United States Fencing Association club that was established in 2019 and specializes in Olympic Fencing. We teach students, starting as young as 3 years old, about the proper use of fencing equipment and the play of fencing swords in a safe and energetic environment. Our focus is on the epee style of fencing, and we welcome both able-bodied and wheelchair (parafencing) students.

We are proud to have thriving programs that have been running for 4 years. Our offerings include 8 beginning-level classes, 2 intermediate classes, competitive classes, and an elite class. We are also a diverse community with representation of over 30 different languages, ensuring that everyone feels welcome at our club.

At Kaizen, we have a clear pathway for growth and a proven system to help our students reach their goals. Whether it is through focused skills and conditioning semi-private classes, group classes, mental training, situational fencing, video analysis, or private lessons, we have the resources to support your journey.

In addition to our local students, we also have experience teaching international and Olympic students through our private lessons and competitive programs. We ensure that they are well-prepared for their respective competitions.

More than just a fencing club, we see ourselves as a center for training future leaders through the sport of fencing. We believe in cultivating the unique talents of our students from a young age, starting at 3 years old and up.

Kaizen, which means "Continuous Improvement," embodies our philosophy of self-improvement and positive changes, whether they are one-time or continuous, big or small. We measure success in many ways and offer multiple paths to help you achieve your goals. If you're ready to embark on a lifetime journey of growth, we are here to support you every step of the way.
