Fencing has a long traditional history as an Olympic Sport. It was one of only 9 sports featured in the first modern Olympic in 1896. Fencing is a great way to incorporate multidimensional exercise into your life. It enables students to build muscle while burning calories. The sport naturally helps to develop greater hand-eye coordination, balance, and emotional control. It promotes self- confidence, self-discipline, and enhanced decision-making skills. Success in fencing depends on one’s ability to overcome their opponent both physically and mentally. A good fencer learns to be extremely observant. They are taught to recognize patterns in their opponent’s tactics. This is the reason that fencing is often called “Physical Chess”. It is a romanticized, unique, quick, and very exciting sport! Fencing is also considered an extremely safe sport and is recognized as having one of the lowest injury rates among all Olympic Sport Competitions. For the committed fencer, the sport is NCAA recognized with recruitment opportunities available from many of the nation’s top universities.
Fencing coaches are the critical component of a successful fencing club. Coaches should be experts in the weapon they’re teaching and knowledgeable in a logical progression of skills that serve to meet the needs of each of their individual fencers. A coach’s ability to establish a strong rapport with students and to share their love and passion for the sport is equally important.
Head Coach Kai Zhao and Master Coach Shuang Meng are true testaments to everything great fencing coaches should be. Both received years of training at the highest International levels and are successful and well-established athletes in their own right. As coaches the pair have combined their expertise to create an unmatched training program for students that reinforces teamwork while inspiring personal growth both on and off the fencing piste. Their professional and organized approach fosters a rewarding and respectful experience for students and their families. Head Coach Kai’s capability as a strip coach to guide his students can only be described as pure magic, often completely reversing a bout from a loss to a win. This skill comes from the depth of the relationships all the coaches at SFA have with their students and it is why their athletes continue to rank among the top foil fencers both Nationally and Internationally.
