From Our Editors
Since its foundation in 2003, Los Angeles International Fencing Center?s coaches?some of whom have competed at the Olympic level?have enhanced the repertoires of novices and recent Olympians alike. In the studio?s supportive learning environment, fencers of all ages and skill levels don protective leather gloves and masks before learning to wield weapons such as the lightweight foil and the hefty ?p?e. The complementary curriculum places heavy emphasis on strength and footwork, ensuring that pupils can deliver parries and thrusts even while sparring against square dancers armed with fiddle bows.
