Chess in the Schools – A Great Model Program for Fencing


Last week i met with the executive director of this fantastic foundation called “Chess in the Schools” which runs chess programs in over 50 inner-city public schools in New York City.

I was actually one of the original cohorts of children in the 1980s when i attended Central Park East I in East Harlem. I’m currently starting up a foundation “Fencing in The Schools” to similarly bring the sport of fencing to tens of thousands of children in nyc and hopefully beyond. Combing my love for fencing and education!

Hoping to create something enduring and powerful so i’ve been meeting with a lot of great sports organizations and schools to get ideas and how to best structure everything. So far, just in the “discovery” phase but with plans to launch within a year or so.
