Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at age six at the Durandal a Fort de France club in Martinique.

Why this sport? He and his brother were inspired to start fencing after watching movies with sword fighting in them. "The epee was the weapon of duels, and when I started fencing I was too young to use one, which made me want to do it even more."
