Tim Morehouse to Speak to Crowd of 400 at TEDxColumbiaCollege Spring Conference

Olympic Silver Medalist Fencer Tim Morehouse will be speaking at the second annual TEDxColumbiaCollege Spring Conference on March 29, 2014. His talk will focus on how he overcame the odds in his Olympic journey and how he is applying those same lessons in his new mission to bring the sport of fencing to millions of children throughout the country.

Also participating will be figure skater Sasha Cohen, artist Lucien Smith, and journalist/entrepreneur Shane Snow, as well as many other thought leaders from a wide cross-section of fields and disciplines, each of whom has made a commitment to something bigger than the self. Examining the question of “Why Commit?” the speakers will all be reflecting on the active engagement that entails dedication to an idea, art form, institution, even another human being. “Why commit?” challenges us to articulate exactly what keeps us going, to find a meaningful path forward, and to make sense of the world and people around us.

Saturday, March 29, 2014
10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

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:
