If I could articulate the purpose and impact of the Fencing Master tournament into a slide it would be the above from the Korean-US Elite Tournament! The purpose of the Korean-USA Elite tournament is to promote fencing, but this slide also clearly lays the impact of that raised awareness and then also the structural pieces that need to be in place to maximize that impact.
If I could article the three main buckets of actions needed to grow fencing:
#1 Create awareness of the sport.
#2 increasing opportunities for people to participate.
#3 find places for talented fencers to be developed to their full potential.
It is pretty powerful for me to see this all laid out. Good teachers beg, borrow and steal. 😉
