I'm not too good at NJ geography, but in two weeks (Feb. 26th) the
Mid-Atlantic Conference fencing championships will be held at Drew
University, which I believe is in northern NJ.  This should be a good
opportunity for you to make fencing connections, since there will be a few
NJ schools there, and they would probably know of any clubs in the area.
You might even end up fencing with them during their practices.  I know we
at Haverford College often do that, just to get a new fencer to fence
against us so we are kept honest.
I hope you can make it to the MAC championships, and I hope that you find
what you need there.  And by all means, feel free to seek me out if you're
there.

Good luck,
Matt

I go to BCAF, and they are very good instructors.  Circle d'Escrime,
however, is in Sellersville, which is in the middle of nowhere in
Pennsylvania.  In NJ, I have had recommended to me Lilov Fencing Academy
in Monclair.  I haven't been there yet, but to find out more call:
