What do Mark Zuckerberg, Tom Cruise, Will Smith, and David Beckham all have in common?
They all love Fencing! Zuckerberg was captain of his college team, and the latter three all fence together with Tom Cruise leading the instruction.
Many successful people out of the limelight enjoy the lifelong sport of Fencing as well. We've found many of our students come from debate club, Model UN, chess club, kids in band, taking music, and robotics clubs.
Has your kid displayed disinterest in playing team sports like basketball or football?
Fencing is excellent for honing concentration, precision, confidence, tactics, speed, flexibility, balance, dedication, and the ability to win and lose gracefully.
We find that many kids don't feel drawn to the more prominent sports; those team sports don't suit them for whatever reason.
These kids would often love to have a physical outlet to learn about life, competition, winning, and losing.
What exactly is Fencing?
According to Wikipedia:
"Fencing  is a group of three related combat sports. The three disciplines in modern Fencing are the foil, the épée, and the sabre (also saber); winning points happens through the weapon's contact with an opponent.
Fencing was one of the first sports to be played in the Modern Olympics. Based on traditional swordsmanship skills, this modern sport arose at the end of the 19th century.
There are three forms of modern Fencing, each of which uses a different kind of weapon and has different rules; thus, the sport itself is divided into three competitive scenes: foil, épée, and sabre. Most competitive fencers choose to specialize in one weapon only.
