"… Sergey's teaching skills and training methods is of the first caliber. I particularly like the idea of taking a set drill and turning it into a tactical exercise and pushing that exercise to a level of reasonable performance before free fencing.  In fact I am of the notion that the set drills are as equally important as free fencing. I believe in the building block process of training which constantly reinforces the basics, and you do that very well. It has been an absolute pleasure to be associated with you these past months and I do learn more from you than you may think …"

"… My child has become very excited about this sport.  We are very happy that she has found something, other than video games, that she can focus her energy into.  Although she has only been going to practice for a short period of time and my wife and I do not know a whole lot about the sport we feel that you do a very good job of teaching the kids.  We know that this age group requires a huge amount of patience, but you manage to keep it fun for them while still teaching them the proper technique and skills of the sport. Thanks Sergey for all your efforts …"

"… My son has been fencing at Golden Sabre Academy for five months. I cannot say enough positive things about this club. Sergey is a firm but fair coach. He expects hard work and encourages every fencer to do their best both on and off the strip. The facility is top notch with plenty of space and equipment and membership fees are unbelievably affordable. I would urge anyone who is interested in fencing to check out Golden Sabre Academy …"

 

"… I have been involved in fencing in variety of capacities on and off for about 40 years. Visited GSA last weekend. Very impressed with facilities and location. Close to the freeway, many stores/restaurants nearby. The club itself puts safety and comfort of fencers first. There are separate well appointed rooms for parents, kids, homework doing students, etc. Coaching is on very high level, the club has produced in short time a few national event medalists. Looking forward to more results, great athletes from the Golden Sabre Academy …"

 

"… This club is like the best-kept secret in San Diego fencing. It just opened a few months ago, but the coach Sergey is outstanding. He's passionate about fencing and really cares about his students. He focuses on physical fitness as well as excellent fencing technique, and he's already produced top nationally-ranked youth fencers. We drive over 20 miles to take lessons and classes at Golden Sabre Academy although there are clubs closer to us …"

"… Golden Sabre Academy is a top notch sabre fencing club. Students receive excellent training and enjoy working hard individually and together under Coach Sergey's leadership. Coach is very accomplished in his own career as a fencer, has great teaching skills and credentials, and has a passion for this sport which is contagious. Coach trains students to think strategically and prepare mentally, not just perform tactically. He is firm, holding students to high expectations, but he is also generous with encouraging words, knowing when each student is trying his or her best. Sergey's investment in his students is evident: after students leave the gym for the day, he continues to think about how to move his fencers forward and sends families helpful information (articles, announcements, videos) by email about sabre fencing strategies, techniques, competition opportunities (individual and team), tips for college-bound fencers, etc. Sergey and his family foster an energetic and family-oriented culture at Club - students and parents alike enjoy being a part of this friendly and dynamic club …"
