Due to unexpected circumstances Clinton Fencing Club is closed. Eric will continue coaching at the Medeo Fencing Club in Bridgewater NJ. www.medeofencing.com
I’ve owned the club for over ten years and tried to make it a safe and fun place for students to learn the sport of fencing. Over the years I’ve enjoyed helping the fencers and their parents come to understand the sport better as well as take care of their numerous equipment problems. Our fencers have found great success on the local, national and international circuits and I will miss watching their growth and achievements. This is a very difficult time for me but I am looking forward to retirement and spending more time with my family. Thanks for all the great memories.
