Start your Training or Practice with CoachGerryDuran; in addition to your Academy training. Or to satisfy personal curiosity for a deeper understanding of Olympic Sport Fencing by Practicing with the original founder (1992) of Tampa Fencing Academy Coach Gerry Duran, now retired. Coach Gerry Duran’s Home Fencing Studio, is located only 3 miles from Tampa Fencing Academy.                                   

 I’m reducing my Home Fencing Practice Studios armories inventory by donating fencing weapons, to head Coach Boyko Krastevitch for use in his summer camp at Tampa Fencing Academy.

Gerardo Duran’s coaching and teaching education.

I attended in 1991 and 1992, the United States Fencing Association's (USFA) Coaches College at the Olympic Training Center (OTC), Colorado Springs, founded “Tampa's Fencing Academy” Tampa Florida, and became a lifetime member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association. Ten years later at age 62 it was time to retire from my day job to dedicate 25 hours a week in teaching and coaching sport fencing at the Academy and local private schooled. I revisited the Coaches College in 2005 for  an additional 3 weeks of coaches training (EPEE, FOIL, SABRE) and was privileged to attended a seven day seminar “Sport Fencing- The Unity of Theory and Practice”, with renowned Polish Fencing Master and Coach Professor Zhigniew Czajkowski. "There is always something more to learn in this sport: better techniques, tactics, and pedagogy.

On October 2007 I transferred the Academy and job of Head Coach /Director/Owner of Tampa's Fencing Academy (TFA) to Coach Boyco Krastavich, a Bulgarian educated fencing coach and Sports Educator with international competitive experience. I continued teaching at TFA and at summer physical education Olympic fencing credit classes at Berkeley Preparatory School, Tampa FL.  

In 2013 I began, in home caring my wife Roselyn and started teaching and coaching sport fencing exclusively only at my Home Fencing Studio.
