Instructor Alex Bucevicius
Alex Bucevicius attended college at the University of Nebraska at Omaha,
earning his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. He currently works as a
software developer in the Omaha area.
Alex started fencing in early 2005 when his
martial arts class decided to branch out and compete in the 2005 state games.
After six months of training, he went on to place second in the Novice Foil
competition. When he entered UNO as a freshman, he helped restart the UNO
Fencing Club along with martial arts teammate Tristan Holton.
In the summer of 2008, Alex joined the Omaha Fencing Club as a competitor and
coach. After his first USFA competition, he was hooked and competed as often as
time allowed. Alex also served as the head coach for the UNO Club from summer of
2008 until his graduation in Winter of 2009. He continues as an alumni to help
bring the UNO team up to competitive levels. Alex is actively involved with all
three regional clubs: Omaha Fencing Club (OFC), UNO Fencing Club (UNOFC) and the
Lincoln Fencing Club (LFC) of Lincoln, NE. He serves as the Vice President of the OFC.
Alex is active primarily in fencing, but has also practiced
Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing and traditional martial arts with SIMS Dojo in Bellevue.
In December 2009, Alex enrolled in the United States Fencing Coach’s
Association (USFCA) moniteur exam and completed the examination for all three
weapons (Moniteur d’Armes). He plans on enrolling in the USFA Coaches College as
well for further training opportunities. Alex holds a B rating in Epee, C in Saber and
a D in Foil. He competes regularly at regional tournaments as well as North American Cups (NACs)
and Summer Nationals. His weapon of choice is Epee for competition, with Saber being a close second.
Alex also offers personalized private lessons at $15 per half hour session. E-mail or contact him directly
