The “Jedi Master” of Columbia University Fencing.

Great article in the NY Times about how Columbia Fencing has become the #1 team in the country including that they have a “Jedi Master” on staff.

The “Jedi Master” they refer to is no other than Aladar Kogler of course! (pictured above) He has coached numerous Olympians throughout decades and employees a lot of different psychological methods to aid his students.

There are a lot of fun stories out there about him, but I’ll leave that to his former and current students to share.

Great Article on the team in the NY Times and Great Press for Fencing:
