Welcome to La Jolla Fencing Academy (LJFA)
The New Home of SPARTAK Fencing Club
LJFA/SPARTAK Fencing Club trains some of the best fencers in the world right here in San Diego, CA. SPARTAK was founded in 1991 by Dmitriy Guy (US National Coach, US North American Open Champion and Soviet Union National Champion).
We are the only fencing club in San Diego who has produced World and National Champions. Our fencers are members of the U.S. National Teams, have won NCAA Championships and have been named All-Americans at top colleges and universities. LJFA/SPARTAK athletes were recruited to compete for the most prestigious colleges in the US including Harvard, Columbia, Notre Dame, Wharton School of Business (UPENN), UCSD and many others.
LJFA’s training program allows any fencer to achieve his or her dream of competing at the highest level of this Olympic sport. Our elite, international-level coaching staff is one of the best in the US and will dedicate itself to each and every student. Every athlete will enjoy learning the wonderful sport of fencing in our new, spacious state-of-the-art facility. LJFA is very excited to open its doors and unleash the force to any fencer brave enough.
