Al Carter began developing The Xcel Training System in Los Angeles in 1999. By 2001, one of his first students was a National Champion, while two others were National Medalists (one earning the highest National Rating, “A”, in only 18 months). This is an ideal place to introduce your child to youth sports, and a great place for an absolute beginner fencing introduction. We provide a nurturing and supportive club atmosphere where kids can be a part of a positive experience, while enjoying a very unique sport. As students learn to fence, they not only have a great deal of enjoyment, but also experience tremendous personal growth. Fencing (swordplay) is a facet of the Martial Arts. Not only do students gain the physical benefits, enhanced focus, and self-discipline of being involved in a Martial Art, we mentor students (as does the Martial Arts Master), guiding each student to realize the countless parallels between fencing and life. Many students attain university admissions and earn scholarships at recognized universities throughout the country. Although students become very successful fencers, we believe that success in fencing is secondary to success in life. Through fencing, mentoring, and academic support programs, we work to help students develop life skills, and attend top universities in the country.
