Led by longtime U.S. Olympic Sabre Fencing Coach Ed Korfanty, Oregon Fencing Alliance has helped hundreds of fencers of all ages, from 6 to over 60, pursue and achieve their fencing dreams at our Greater Portland-area fencing club.
Over the past two decades, our fencers have won Olympic medals, World Championships, National Championships and NCAA championships. Dozens of our scholar-athletes have gone on to fence at prestigious Division I universities.
The Oregon Fencing Alliance is a non-profit organization created to encourage physical fitness, support a fencing club, establish and promote formal instruction in fencing throughout the community, and hire world-class coaches to train fencers for national and international competition.
