Additional Details

Each fencer's growth is determined, at it's core, by their dedication. Experience and determination will out-fence talent any day.

Also, in our combined century of experience, we've never seen anyone with a natural talent to fence. Everyone who's walked through our doors or fenced on the international level started as a beginner.

Anyone can do it.

You can do it.
