At Vivo Fencing Club, founded in 2012, beginners and elite competitive fencers alike can learn the Olympic sport of fencing. Our club is located in Haverhill, MA, about 35 miles north of Boston. With 15 electric strips laid out on special resilient sports flooring, we provide ample space and a comfortable climate-controlled environment to learn. Plus, all of the fencing equipment is supplied for beginner classes, making Vivo a great place to start.
Our coaches are amongst the best in the sport. Arpad Horvath is a former World Champion, and Molly Sullivan Sliney is a two-time Olympian. Kornel Udvarhelyi is our Master Coach for both Epee and Foil. He recently served as Coach of the U.S. Men’s Epee Olympic Team in Tokyo 2020/2021.
Vivo Fencing Club is the perfect place to learn the Olympic sport of fencing. We are ready to welcome you. So come on by and join us—as we say, “En garde!”
We offer Beginner Youth Fencing for boys and girls. Then you move to Intermediate Fencing after that. The goal is to join a Competitive Fencing Class. After all, Fencing is a competitive sport. Participating in the competing community with fencers from other area clubs is a lot of fun! That’s where it all starts. And it ladders up to Regional, National, And, International competitions. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let us know if you are interested in beginning fencing!
