Dear fencing athletes, dear parents,
due to the Corona COVID 19, 2020 has been an extremely difficult period for all of us. The conditions we have experienced lately are unprecedented and have an impact on every area of our lives.
We experienced fear for our health and were deprived of important things so that we and those around us would not be in danger. We found out, once again, that what we take for granted is unfortunately not also what should be appreciated as long as we have it.
Sports in general, and in particular our sport, fencing, is truly a gift that promotes and improves our mental and physical health. During this difficult time, the only cure for this condition was exercise. We saw people exercising at home, others running on the street.
Based on the love we all have for sports and fencing, I boldly make the decision to organize a summer fencing program in Ancient Olympia with the aim of achieving rejuvenation and training improvement and, especially during this period, dealing with its negative psychological and training effects. (detraining).
It is the right time for me to realize what has always been a dream and to communicate my 38 years of experience in sports and fencing.
