even James Bond got in on the act, and felt the excitement and thrill that comes from those deftly manipulated blades! It was Zorro (the 1960’s series…) that inspired me to start fencing at age 11. And I am still at it…

Now you too can learn the secrets of fencing, join the battles, experience the exhilaration of stabbing someone without being arrested and have fun!
