Joseph Zanko III,
Coach & Director of Youth Sabre

Joe began fencing in 2006 at Fordham University’s club program. Upon returning to New Jersey he began fencing with Ron Margulis at the Westfield Fencing Club, where he eventually began his coaching career as Assistant Sabre Coach.

In 2010 Joe began fencing at Hub City and training under Coach Rich to improve both his fencing and his coaching. His original part-time coaching duties at Hub City have grown to include the instruction of youth classes in all three weapons as well as private students. After working as an Assistant Coach with Rich and Sean at the Lawrenceville School, Joe became the Middle School and Assistant Varsity Fencing Coach at Gill St. Bernards, a private school in Gladstone, New Jersey.

Joe is also a competitive fencer and currently holds ratings in all three weapons, a C15 in Sabre, D15 in Epee, and E15 in Foil.
