Valentin Nikolov started fencing at the age of 12. He has over 30 years of fencing experience. He excelled as a member of the Bulgarian National Saber Team and later coached the Bulgarian World Cup and Olympic Teams. He coached his team to second place in the world. This is an amazing feat when one considers the small size of the country of Bulgaria. We are very fortunate to have Coach Valentin as a part of the 3rd Street Fencing Academy. He is its heart and soul.

Norman is very proud of the fact that our first club graduate will be attending his alma-mater, The University of Florida, as a Fencing Gator.
