Pics from Bryant Park Fencing (@bryantparknyc) Final Class! (For Now!)


Had a great time last week visiting with the students of the free fencing class at Bryant Park in NYC! For the past few months, people could sign up for the class taking place behind the Library in conjunction with Bryant Park and Manhattan Fencing Center.   Coaches Sergey Isayenko and Andrew Lamianski provided expert instruction to the  adults who have been signing up (it’s been booked solid every class!) and attending each week.

Not to mention the hundreds of people who stop by to check out the fencing action as the class is going on!

Bryant Park has a ton of other stuff going on and you can check out the activities here:

NY Times Weekend Miser: Free Fencing Lessons, Yoga and Ballet

Nice article in the New York Times about the free fencing classes in Bryant Park as well as some of the other free activities you can find to do in NYC this summer.  Pictured above is Coach Sergey Isayenko from Manhattan Fencing Center teaching a new student.

The classes have been mostly adults and sold out each week!
