A Chat with Olympia Fencing Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Olympia Fencing Center is more than a fencing club, is a big fencing family, where parents and kids fence together. Our highly skilled coaches, most of them, ex - Olympians, not only teach, but inspire and support the students, in a warm approach and a home like feeling.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We strive to show everyone the beauty of fencing, with all its great benefits! There is no shyness, the newcomers are warmly welcomed, fencing stories are told, friendships are born. Currently holding New England's Division best results, you can only be inspired at Olympia - we raise champions!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Love and passion. Fencing for over 30 years, coaching for fifteen and seeing my students, my own son, becoming not only successful fencers, but great people with admirable personality traits, built by discipline, hard work and good sportsmanship, I knew that it's something I'll do for life.
What do you love most about your job?
Having a lot of children! They all feel like my own and I'm witnessing their ups and downs, in fencing as in life, these two go hand in hand - today you win, tomorrow you may fail, but life must go on, pick yourself up and try again. Plus, it's something you can do for life - age doesn't matter.
