The Kern Athletic Fencing Foundation, Inc. (KAFF), is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation dedicated to promoting the healthy development, resiliency building, and empowerment of the youth of Kern County by providing physical activity and intellectual stimulation in a safe environment.

The Smart Fencing for Kern County program at local schools is erected on two pillars of discipline: physical training and academic tutoring, with the objective of whole child development. Participating at-risk students will receive free group fencing lessons and individual tutoring as long as they maintain satisfactory progress in their academic subjects and conduct.
