In Alameda, Bay Area sports history of #fencing detailed

Though they might know such terms as thrust and parry — and maybe even know the three types of swords used: foil, sabre and épée — many Americans still regard fencing as a European-dominated sport that comes and goes every four years with the Summer Olympics. Doug Nichols knows better.

Long dedicated to fencing, Nichols has established himself as an authority on the sport — past and present — as executive director, archivist and historian of the West Coast Fencing Archive. Part of his research underscores the sport’s long-running connection to the Bay Area, where a tradition of clubs and college programs still exists. Nichols recently detailed all of this in the “History of Fencing in the Bay Area,” a program presented at the Pacific Fencing Club in Alameda.

Ron Miller Retires After 51 Years as UNC #Fencing Head Coach

After 51 years at the helm of the UNC fencing team, head coach Ron Miller is finally calling it a career.

Miller coached the first season of Tar Heel fencing back in 1967-68, and has been the face of the program ever since–mentoring numerous student-athletes during that time.

“Ron’s dedication to Carolina and the sport of fencing is just incredible,” UNC Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham said, in a statement released by the university. “The fact he’s been here for more than half a century is amazing on its own, but it’s even more impressive when you know the impact he’s had on Tar Heel students over that time.

En garde! Ukrainians practise their #fencing skills in one of the country's increasingly popular knife fighting schools

Incredible photos show a group of men fighting shirtless in Ukraine.

The pictures, taken yesterday, show a coach watching two scantily-clad men fight against each other with wooden sticks.

They are demonstrating their skills in an increasingly popular sport in the country- fencing.

Other young men look on while others take their turn to fight in a city park in Ukraine's capital, Kiev.

Members of schools of knife fight are all above 25 years old and do not take part in any competitions.

The men wear just fencing masks, trainers, shorts and gloves as they lunge and plunge at one another while on-lookers watch in awe.

Local athlete sabres victory at university #fencing championships

A Point Edward woman captured this year’s gold medal in sabre at the Ontario University Women’s Fencing Championships.

“It’s nice,” said Victoria Edwards. “I put in a lot of work and it’s nice to see it pay off in the end.”

The second-year Western University law student took up the sport only six years ago while doing an undergraduate degree in life sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton.

A graduate of Sacred Heart and St. Patrick’s High School, Edwards has always played sports and was active in basketball and volleyball.

Columbus Academy Roundup: Gouhin continues to pursue Olympic dream

Only a freshman in high school, Chloe Gouhin has traveled around the world in pursuit of her ultimate dream.

The Columbus Academy student has maintained a busy competition schedule in #fencing in hopes of representing the United States in the Summer Olympics, possibly in 2020 in Tokyo or 2024 in Paris.

“That’s definitely my ultimate goal,” said Gouhin, who recently captured the state championship in junior women’s saber. “I’ve been talking with my coach (Vladimir Nazlymov) and working towards that. (In) 2024 definitely -- 2020 is kind of a long shot -- but it would be nice. It’s possible.”

Bowling Green #Fencing Academy hosts theatrical fencing

The Bowling Green Fencing Academy, or BGFA, is extending the plethora of unique activities in Bowling Green to include theatrical fencing.

BGFA is one session into its six-session theatrical fencing courses, which run from April 10 to May 1.

The theatrical fencing classes take place from 7-8 p.m. every Tuesday from April 10 to May 1 at Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Center at 225 Third Ave. The class costs $75 for all six sessions.

The course instructs theatrical fencing inspired by the work of prominent fight choreographers such as Bob Anderson, who worked on The Princess Bride and Star Wars, and William Hobbs, who worked on The Duellists. The class is taught through the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department, said Stephen Fisher, owner and head coach of BGFA.

Campus club strives to establish #fencing as a varsity sport

Fencing is a classic sport that has been recognized at the Olympic level since 1896. Despite this, it’s not widely played in North America. The University of Calgary Fencing Club aims to change this by giving students the opportunity to sample the lesser-known sport.

Established in 1963 by Don Laszlo, the Fencing Club is geared towards university students but is also open to the wider community. The volunteer-run organization hosts beginner’s classes every wednesday evening and open sessions on Sunday afternoons where fencers of all skill levels can challenge each other to bouts.

Club president Kali Sayers really enjoys teaching the basics of fencing to newcomers.
