Doesn’t everyone wish he could fence?.....It is violence refined into beauty, it has associations with love, honor and suicidal pride. We think of great fencers-unlike great footballers or junk-bond salesman-as superior beings: air and fire, rather than earth and water. We think of Cyrano, Zorro and the Three Musketeers.

The Duke Home Meet
This short clip is from the Duke Home Meet. It is a first class collegiate tournament.
The Notre Dame men epee fencers had t-shirts that had "Irish Fencing" written on them. I thought they were cool and looked into ordering one on-line. Sadly, those must be for the team.
