Luso Fencing Academy (LFA) has been established in March 2014 by portuguese fencing coach Carina Vicente. The name Luso is a tribute to the founder´s portuguese roots. Lusus was the supposed son or companion of Bacchus to whom portuguese national mythology attributed the foundation of ancient lusitania and the fatherwood of its inhabitants the lusitanians, seen as the ancestors of the modern Portuguese people.
LFA started to offer a Children Fencing Academy in Marlow and got involved with a few local schools. Its success brought other schools into the project in September 2014 as well as a new Children Fencing Academy session and an Adult Fencing Academy in Maidenhead
Nowadays Luso Fencing Academy runs over 20 weekly sessions between club sessions and school sessions seeing over 150 fencers.
