Our Mission

ASER  Fencing Academy started in 2021 in order to provide high-quality fencing instruction for everyone of every age and any level. Our core value is to provide friendly environment for our fencers and their families where everyone can reach their highest potential. We highly believe that fencing can be more than only a sport for you, it can teach you the way to live, persist against hard situations, learn the team work, how to work hard and smart for your life and how to plan to get your goals in your real life. At the same time, we try to provide highest quality instructions to provide everything our fencers need to get in their best shape.  This is something that our previous fencers, their results and the time course for taking results already proved in USA fencing.

Our team

Exercise physiologist, PH.D.

Dr. Abdollah Serajian started fencing at age of 14 in Iran that after the start, very soon he realized his deep passion for it. Soon after starting fencing, he started to be a competitive fencer and became a fencer of the national junior fencing team of Iran. In his first tournament, he could win the 3rd team place in Asian junior and cadet fencing championships in 2006 Kuwait city. After it, he kept continuing as a fencer of the national Junior fencing team of Iran where during his career, he got 3rd individual place in the Junior world cup in 2007 and 5th place in 2008 junior world cup in Iran. In 2008, he could get the 2nd individual place in Asian junior fencing championships in Seoul, South Korea. After it, he joined the Iranian national senior team where he presented the Iranian national senior team in different Asian championships, World Championships, Grand Prix, World cups, Olympic qualifications, and international tournaments all around the world. During these years, while he was graduated from aviation school, he decided to change to sport sciences to learn everything he needs to be a professional athlete and later, a coach. Therefore, he got his bachelor's in physical education and sport sciences, Master of exercise physiology, and then Ph.D. of exercise physiology from the best universities in his country. All of these happened while he was the fencer of the national team and participating in different tournaments, camps, and training. In 2013, after participating in Asian senior fencing championships in Shanghai, he decided to keep his focus on his Ph.D. to finish that.  After that, he started to help young athletes in his country where his students became fencers of national cadet, junior and senior fencing team of Iran that still some of them are currently fencing in the national team and presenting their country at the international level. During this period of time, he started the talent identification committee of the fencing federation of Iran and provided talent identification criteria for fencing in the fencing federation of Iran based on his master thesis and started to look all around his country to find talented kids, educate them and help them to join national team camps. At the same time, he started to work as a conditioning coach of national fencing teams of Iran including the 2016 and 2020 Iranian Saber team Olympians. While in 2017, he became the coach of the national women's senior fencing team of Iran. Finally, in 2017 he participated in an international coaching course that was presented by the international fencing federation (FIE) and the University of Budapest where he got his coaching certificate in one of the best fencing schools in the world. After finishing this course, he finished his Ph.D. course in 2018, and finally, he decided to immigrate to the USA. In the USA, he started as an epee head coach where his students in about 2 years could get different national, SYCs, RYCs, NACs, and regional tournaments and finally he decided to start his own fencing schools in 2021. The reason he decided to start his own fencing academy was because of his long-term mindset to use all of the experience and knowledge he learned during these years to prepare his students to become successful people in their life and in fencing. He thinks that fencing could help him to be a happier, stronger, smarter, and more successful person in life and tries to do the same for his students to become successful next generation of the USA.
