Fairfax Fencers Welcomes Head Coach Witold Rutkowski
Coach Rutkowski comes to us with a rather extensive list of accomplishments as both fencer and coach. We are excited that he will be using his experience to complement our already very talented group of volunteer coaches. He has earned medals in many events Nationally and Internationally to include a gold medal in the Polish Junior Championships, and an opportunity to fence with the National Junior Team. Coach Rutkowski began coaching in Poland in 1990, during this time he was able to train with students from many countries to include the USA, Canada, Scandinavia and the Ukraine. After graduating with his Masters in Sociology he completed the “International Fencing Course” under renowned Polish coach Prof. Zbigniew Czajkowski as well as several US coaches. Witold came to the U.S. via Texas in the early 2000’s and has coached in various clubs throughout the US.
Witold has a boundless passion for fencing and for teaching others the art, science and joy of fencing. Please join us in welcoming him to our club and to Northern VA! Stay tuned for additional class opportunities coming soon~ such as the one below.
Coach Rutkowski is now offering private lessons in all three weapons.
Coach Rutkowski is also providing a Veterans (40 and over) Epee Class from 6-7 Friday evenings.

A Few words about Us
At Fairfax Fencers, we believe that anyone can learn to fence! It’s one of the few sports in which people of different ages, builds, and genders compete on equal terms. We strive to offer a fun, rewarding and welcoming experience to anyone who comes through our door. Students learn to attack with the intent to hit, and to defend with the intent to not be hit. This integrates the mind fully with the actions of the body.
