He started out ranked 114th, and fought his way to 23rd.

New Beginnings starting Tuesday 8/28/21

846 Front Street, Santa Cruz CA 95060 (Next to the Post Office)
Room 21 (Second floor)

  • Beginning Fencing Youth (9-13 years old): Tuesdays 6:30pm-8:00
  • Open Fencing: Tuesdays: 8:00-9:30pm
  • Adult Fencing: Thursdays 6:30-8:00.

This building is old and beautiful. The room we will fence in is stunning, with high ceilings and exposed wooden beams. Banks of windows (which can be opened) line the room facing downtown Santa Cruz.

I’ve fenced for decades all over the states. I’ve never crossed blades in a room as lovely as this.

Park for free at the bank next door.
