“The international continental courses for coaches, which are held thanks to the development and support program of the International Fencing Federation, have become a tradition for the training of coaches in our continent. Year after year, we see the growth in the technical part of all the federations that rely on these activities and that are shared in turn, to the athletes and future coaches in their respective countries. We hope to continue developing these international courses to help in the growth of Pan American fencing.”
A total of 35 coaches from 28 national federations participated in this new international course for epee coaches, which was given by Master Gennady Tyshler, a renowned master of weapons, with a great international trajectory in the training of coaches and with a great deal of teaching experience. The participants expressed their satisfaction for the knowledge acquired, which will be very useful to continue with the development programs in their respective countries.
The course was also complemented with a refereeing seminar by Mr. Amgad Badawi, member of the FIE refereeing commission. The knowledge about technical rules and refereeing will help coaches to perform their work in a complete way in several areas.
Finally, we would like to thank the Peruvian Fencing Federation, Peruvian Olympic Committee and Peruvian Institute of Sport for all their support in the development of this international course for coaches.
