This was especially an important event since for most of our little ones it was their FIRST time competing!
Our thanks go to the PARENTS – we appreciate your support, before, during and after the competition, many of you were attending one for your first time, as well, and we know how confusing and heart breaking this can be, watching your little one fencing older, taller, stronger fencers.
BUT – as you all could see, they were in good hands: as we promised, they all had a great experience, a good time and came home a bit wiser!
Thank you all, parents and participants and we’re looking forward to the rising of a new generation of champions!!
