Every year Salle Santa Cruz brings all of our electric fencing gear and hosts a novice tournament for the kids at Bolsa Knolls and Gavilan Middle School in Salinas.
Here are this years winners!
The Navrati celebration held every year in the gym is again in session.
To avoid missing so many fencing classes, I’ve made arrangements with the pastor so that we may fence in the church sanctuary Tues and Thurs evenings through October 27th.
We’ll move a pews around a little, and I have faith that it will work out just fine =)
We had 9 people competing in 5 of 6 events (men’s/women’s foil & epee and women’s saber). All that competed qualified. Congrats to the following!
For the first time in a long time UCSC had Intramural fencing, of a sort.
It was a “come try electric fencing” tourney. Teams of three competed in a team epee tourney. 37 participants competed on 4 strips… and had a blast doing it =)
We got ’em registered and dressed. I provided a whopping 15 minute tutorial which mostly consisted of 1. How not to hurt each other accidently and 2. How not to break the fencing gear.
And… we got it done in 3 hours… including set-up and breakdown.
Once again Salle Santa Cruz will be co-hosting the Santa Rita Invitational at Bolsa Knolls Middle school in Salinas California. In 2012 there we 54 competitors. Last year we had 67 competitors competing on 7 electric strips. This year promises to be just as fun!
To run the tourney, Salle Santa Cruz will be closed Saturday 11-1.
We are extremely excited to become a part of this years Santa Cruz Challenge, a structured 12-week HEALTH and FITNESS program/ contest!
Check it out!
Salle Santa Cruz will open its doors to the Challengers the week of 11-8-2014.
Helping folks to discover healthy, fitness based passions… It’s a good thing.
I’ve passed my written, oral and practical tests and am now a certified Prévôt de Fleuret with the USFCA. This certification is recognized world wide by member nations of the AAI (Academie d’ Armes Internationionale).
Prévôt is similar to the Master level professional fencing coach with more emphasis on training fencers rather than other coaches.
Fencing at UCSC has a long and storied legacy to which I am proud to offered a chance to contribute.
