Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at age 11 at the Peter Westbrook Foundation in New York, NY, United States of America. He later began training under Yury Gelman, who coached him for free at the Manhattan Fencing Center.
Why this sport? He read about fencing in a children's dictionary when he was young and begged his mother to let him take up the sport. "I think she pushed it aside at the time, but a few years later we were watching television and a commercial that featured two black fencers came on. I pointed it out to my mother, and I think the visual of seeing these black males fencing was enough to make her think this was attainable. She looked up a fencing foundation, and it progressed from there."

OTHER ACTIVITIES
He visits fencing clubs and schools to discuss his experiences in fencing. In 2017 he visited Senegal to teach fencing to prisoners and orphans. "I hope the youth in the programme are able to take away tangible skills from these experiences, and that continued exposure to the sport will lead to more opportunities. I've seen how 'play' and discipline can be connected seamlessly to help the youth in the real world." (cnn.com, 02 Mar 2017; shadeglobal.com, 02 Mar 2017; hackleyschool.org, 20 Jan 2017)
