Q&A with Gene Gettler, Owner And Fencing Master
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
Many fencing clubs cater mostly to children. The Atlanta Fencers' Club loves our active Youth /Teen program, but some of our best fencers are 50+, 60+, and 70+.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
We want your first fencing class to be a positive, memorable experience. You will be given an introduction to the basic fencing techniques, rules of the game, dress out in full fencing gear and have an exhilarating bout. Of course, there will be photo ops at the conclusion.
What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
We have had numerous successful competitive fencers over the years, including one two-time Olympian, and a World Champion. A number of our teen fencers have become excellent collegiate fencers at major universities.
