Fencing Insider: take your fencing to the next level.

If there is one moment in my life where everything changed, it was when I decided to become a fencer. Fencing has given me the opportunity to meet most of my best friends, the chance to get a scholarship at Penn State, and it’s also the reason why I lived in New York after graduating. Fencing has taken me to cities like Seoul, Shanghai, and Saint Petersburg, and places like Petra and the Red Square. In short, I thank fencing for the best experiences I’ve had in my life.
BUT, it wasn’t always that way. At many points, I thought about quitting—especially when I kept on losing at competitions where I knew I should’ve done so much more. Not fencing to the potential I knew I could reach was extremely frustrating. And then everything changed: I won my first senior national title; I started to get my best international results; I was accepted into Penn State, and basically every year I’ve lived ever since has been better than the previous one.
Fencing could also change your life forever. If it already has, I look forward to sharing content that will help you improve your skills and experiences further. If you’re newer to fencing or interested in learning more about the sport, I could not encourage you enough to make that decision. Fencing is not just a sport. It’s an entire lifestyle. Either way, welcome! I’m very excited to share tips, tricks, techniques, exercises, videos, analyses, and other resources to help you get to the next level.
