The coaches at Tim Morehouse Fencing Club, led by Olympic Silver Medalist Tim Morehouse, work hard to create an inclusive and nurturing environment for learners of all abilities.
In addition, TMFC is one of the fastest-rising fencing clubs in the country. After our first year of operation, National Fencing Club Rankings calculated that Tim Morehouse Fencing Club secured the 10th-most youth saber medals and the 5th-most youth boys saber medals during the 2015-2016 season.
The same site also concluded that Tim Morehouse Fencing Club is the best youth women's saber club in the state of New York.
Fencing may be the world's best youth sport because it challenges competitors' brains as strenuously as their bodies.
While fencers benefit from strength and speed, they also need strategy, quick-thinking and determination to overcome their opponents.
The sport also offers a unique mix of camaraderie and self-reliance. Fencers train with teammates who all work to help each other improve. But, when fencers compete, they win or lose by their own actions and choices.
