History of Fencing in the Bay Area
Historically, the San Francisco Bay Area has been home to some of the world’s greatest fencers, who immigrated here from Europe. That legacy has produced American coaches and fencers who are now competing at the top levels of the Olympics and World Cup. There is no better authority than Doug Nichols to tell this rich and intricate story of great athletic and cultural achievement and the colorful personalities who made it happen.
This is a FREE event and open to the public.
