“[Fencing] has helped Kyle so much since he has gone back to public school after 3 years of homeschooling. The self esteem, focus and the support it gives him is priceless to me. This was all his idea. Kyle came to me and out of the blue said “Mom can we do fencing?”. I said sure and did a google search and we are so glad we found Tim Morehouse Fencing Club. He loves his coaches and I can't be more happy to know he is learning discipline, focus and respect for a skill, his coaches and his peers. I love seeing him in the uniform too!” - Jahidah Diaab, Kyle’s Mom

Kyle Brown has been Fencing with us since December 2018. He trains with our amazing Coach Diana, and attends the Saber Youth Class. We are so delighted to fence with Kyle, and we can’t wait to see where this fencing journey takes him.
