Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He first tried the sport in an after-school programme at age 10 in New York, NY, United States of America. He entered his first competition at age 11, and at age 15 he began to consider a career in fencing.
Why this sport? "I used to get into trouble all the time growing up and I was put in an after-school programme at my school. I tried a few different sports there, including fencing. With a sword in your hand, you feel quite powerful. I think that's what really drew me to fencing. Since then I've never looked back."
Club / Team The Fencers Club: New York, NY, USA
Name of coach Simon Gershon [club]; Irene Gershon [club]; Greg Massialas [national], USA
Training Regime He starts training each day at 05:45 with strength work. He then does four hours of fencing drills, with some boxing and ballet to improve his footwork and flexibility.
