Fencing has been a part of Suffolk Fencing Academy owner Anthony Mattera's life for the past fifteen years.


After fencing for Newfield High School and St. John's University, holding the position of Head Coach for Centereach High School, and officiating in local and regional competitions, Coach Mattera decided the sport of fencing was his true calling.


In 2012, Coach Mattera opened the Sachem Fencing Club, bringing the sport to one of the largest school districts in Suffolk County. Coach Mattera realized his program was growing and he owed it to himself, and the Suffolk County fencing community, to expand his program.


After one year of planning, design, and construction, Coach Mattera has finally fulfilled his dream with the opening of the Suffolk Fencing Academy, Suffolk County's premier center for fencing instruction.


The Suffolk Fencing Academy slogan represents everyone and anyone who wants to go out there and achieve something special in their life, but there's only way to do it. Advance for success and never retreat.


Anthony would like to thank his friends, family, and the fencing community for all of their support.

"My daughter started fencing last year. I felt this would be a great way for her to meet friends and work on her socialization. Coach Anthony and Coach Amanda started showing her the ropes. She looks forward to going each week and cannot wait for the next session to start. I am very happy that she has found new friends and a new activity that she can excel in."

- J. Schulte

"Our son Joe has enjoyed the challenging aspects of fencing and the

discipline that this sport requires. Coach Anthony and Coach Amanda have provided an encouraging and positive environment. Joe always looks forward to attending the next class."

- D. and A. Curry
