If you've never seen fencing or are already an avid fan, this is an evening you won't want to miss!
Fencing Masters: Kick Off to London is a competition between the 2012 US Olympic fencing team and some of the best fencers from around the world right before they leave for the Games.
The event is the largest (non-Olympic) spectator fencing tournament in modern US history, the only televised US fencing competition and a celebration of fencing's history, honor, and athleticism. It will be a night of top-caliber fencing, entertainment, dinner, drinks, special tributes, and above all, fun and excitement for the whole family.
Fencing Masters NYC was founded by US Olympian Tim Morehouse in conjunction with WCMG Events along with co-chairs Daria Schneider and Kathleen Reckling. The mission is to promote the sport of fencing by bringing together Olympic-level athletes in highly produced theater held competitions that are aired on television. The first Fencing Masters was held on Nov. 17, 2010 at Hammerstein Ballroom, had 1800 attendees, included Olympians past and present, was televised on SportsNet NY and provided $25,000 worth of grants for Olympic hopefuls.
