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.

Henri Gales Takes Silver in Women's Vet 60 Epee
My training partner takes silver at the December NAC in women's Vet 60 Epee . The term "training partner" seems less than descriptive when describing our friendship. I am so very proud of her. Go Henri Ellen! Top Photo: Henri and Coach Brian Toomey . Owner and Head Coach Charlotte Fencing Academy (who also medaled in Men's Vet 40 Epee.) Bottom photo: Coach Ron Miller Head Coach for the UNC varsity fencing team and celebrating his 50th season. I have been so lucky in having these coaches and I have been blessed to take this fencing journey with Miss Henri.
