Dear Rob and Connie,
I am writing this letter as a thank you for the many years of fun, fencing, and friendship of which I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at the Halberstadt Sabre program.
When I first came to the sabre program I was a small scrawny kid with little disciple. Fencing with you played a significant role in changing me into the Stanford student I am today. From the physical rigor on the fencing strip, to the mental focus on strategy even when completely exhausted, to the technical precision required in every touch; Fencing taught me skills of persistence and grit in ways that no other activity could. Today, I am a changed person and am ever grateful for the transformation that your leadership has inspired in me.
With much love and respect,
Student going to University
Great Fencing Program for Children
Prior to joining this program, our son fenced a week at another club but did not show much interest in the sport. We stumbled across this program while surfing the net and thought we’ll let him try fencing again at this program. We are so glad to have found Rob and Connie, who are great coaches and are very enthusiastic about the sport. They work well with children and helped my son fit in with the rest of the group through games and activities. Their organized program along with the nurturing sparked my son’s interest, and now, he looks forward to the program each week. We’d also like to add that the other children helped my son feel “at home” when he first joined the program. After over a year of fencing, we have noticed how fencing has brought out the assertiveness in our son both in school and other parts of his life.
Best Fencing Coaches For Kids
My son Ethan has been attending Rob and Connie’s fencing classes. He started when he turned 7 and loved the class from day one. Both Rob and Connie strike a great balance between being serious coaches yet also allowing the kids to learn at their own pace and most importantly have fun. They treat each child as an individual, honing their strengths, and helping to build skills where needed. Ethan has gained both a love of fencing as well as coordination and muscles by being a part of this wonderful club.
Wonderful Fencing Coaches!
Rob and Connie have been coaching my children in the art of fencing. However, they’ve taught them more than footwork and strategy. Indeed, Rob and Connie have taught them how to frame realistic goals and achieve them. This important lesson and many others have helped my children succeed in academics as well.
