The fencing magic of the 2018/19 season. Looking forward to some more....

The month of September traditionally rings the "back to school bell" and marks the start of a new fencing season. In order to get back into the swing of things, we’ve put together our highlights of the past season for you. See it as our extra dose of motivation for the upcoming season and it’s undeniable highlight, the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics! ;) Continue reading →

We start with a review by our Instagram girl and epee fencer Johanna (who definitely belongs into the latter category ;) ) . Continue reading →
