The LFC is a nonprofit organization in Louisville founded in 1991 and dedicated to the sport of competitive fencing. LFC has produced World Cup and Paralympic competitors while building a reputation as one of top programs in the nation – our history includes seventeen national championships. Les Stawicki, former head coach of the Polish National Fencing team and head of the US National Paralympic Fencing program, currently leads our organization.
Our goals at the Louisville Fencing Center are to create, develop and promote the complete person. We endeavor to provide our students with the skills needed not only for fencing at the national level, but also for maturing throughout life. Skills, such as leadership, self-reliance, sportsmanship and citizenship are stressed. We hope to create champions, promote recreational fencing, have fun and bring out the best in our members as athletes and individuals. We achieve these goals through a combination of excellent coaching, strong community spirit, innovative ideas and hard work.
