Fencing is one of five sports to be featured in every modern Olympics, while competitive reading and full-contact naps still fight for inclusion. View medal-worthy physical contests with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one ticket and two drink vouchers (a $90 value) to the Fencing Masters at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan. American champion Tim Morehouse created this tournament and expo to showcase elite American and international Olympic athletes and raise money for U.S. Olympic fencing hopefuls. The ground-level seats are so close to the intense bouts of sword poking that attendees will want to remove misappropriated foils and epées from shish kabob drawers to brush up on their own fencing skills. During the VIP after-party at Hudson Terrace, you’ll get a chance to chat with the athletes and maybe ask Morehouse about the time he crossed blades with President Obama, who on weekends acts as the nation’s Zorro-in-Chief.
Fox News and Fencing.net have been excitedly anticipating the upcoming Fencing Masters event. Silver medalist and event organizer Tim Morehouse has been featured in The Huffington Post and the New York Times. Yelpers give the Hammerstein Ballroom a 3.5-star average.
