I love fencing epee because every bout is different. Like a forensic pathologist, I enjoy looking for the clues about my opponents’ strengths and weaknesses and solving each match like a puzzle. I also love the fact that everyone underestimates me until its too late. Over the next three years I plan to continue growing academically and as an athlete. I hope to position myself well to fence at the varsity level at a leading university, and pursue a career in medicine and robotics.

Head Epee Coach's Recommendation

ben_team-photoI am proud to coach Ben at the Fencing Sports Academy (FSA).  Ben is a patient, smart, and talented young man. Ben always arrives for practice on time, and with a positive and respectful attitude. He is a team player who fits in perfectly with all members of our club.

Through his hard work and dedication, Ben earned his Division 1 B rating at the age of 14 and has been on the national points list each year.

Ben has made FSA proud and will make you proud as well!
