Hello. My name is Steve Kaplan, and I am the owner and head coach of the Cobra Fencing Club. I fell in love with fencing in high school and I never looked back. Eleven years later I won a silver medal in US team sabre at the Montreal games in 1975. Afterwards; I competed for the New York fencers Club and won four US team sabre titles with the team. From 1980-86, I coached the fencing team at NYU, was elected to the NYU Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2002, I decided to open my own fencing club in my hometown of Jersey City, NJ. Having learned amazing methods of teaching from my own coach, the legendary Hungarian sabre maestro, Csaba Elthes, I knew I had the right tools and passion to grow a great fencing club & community.
Welcome & thanks for visiting!
