Looking for a Unique Sport? What about Fencing? June 23, 2008

This afternoon I met Margaux Isaksen, a 16 year old modern pentathelete from Fayetteville, Arkansas who just qualified for the Beijing Olympics.

One of the events in the modern pentathlon is fencing, and Margaux learned the sport at the Arkansas Fencing Academy in Springdale.  But, don’t worry if you and your child are not Olympic material.  The Arkansas Fencing Academy provides opportunities for all skill levels, from novice to expert.  For example, I also met a father who is taking fencing lessons with his 11 year old son.  They both highly recommend trying the sport.
