Ok, by far we get the most comments saying, “I can’t wait to see Aldo Montano!!!” So we at the Fencing Masters NYC just needed to pay homage to his fans here in the USA!
Will you be coming to see him fence at the Fencing Masters NYC on Nov 17 at Hammerstein Ballroom?
Get your tickets! www.fencingmastersnyc.com
This is the “soft launch” of the Fencing Masters NYC website! We will be adding details in the coming weeks about special performances, sponsors and other activities!
The FM NYC is a showcase competition featuring some of the best fencers in the world and USA.(in saber) The goal of the event is to showcase the sport in a way that grows the awareness to the general public while promoting (and supporting) our stars.
We have one of the most powerful sporting communities in the world and we’ll need YOUR help to make this a success. Please buy a ticket and bring a non-fencing friend! It will be a special night everyone will remember!
Can’t wait to see you the Fencing Masters NYC 2010!
Paying homage to all things Korean fencing in honor of their world cup victory and incredible results this season.
I don’t know how I missed this…
From the K-Swiss Website:
Sylwia Gruchala is the new female face of K•Swiss. The strikingly beautiful fencing champion from Poland has recently aligned herself with the major sports brand, and is featured in various K•Swiss advertising campaigns around the globe. http://www.k-swiss.com.au/ks_news_sylwia.php
So far we’ve got Margherita Granbassi (ITA) in Nike ads (which ran in NYC btw), Aldo Montano in body wash and fashion advertisements and Sylwia Gruchala with K•Swiss. Go Fencing!
Now, all we need is a US athlete to partner with a big brand for an advertising campaign!!!
Found this video online of these two girls singing a spoof of Justin Timberlake’s “I’m Brining Sexy Back”. Hilarious.
My spoof “go to” fencing song is Lady GaGa’s ‘Just Dance’… “Just Fence!” (It will be ok, JUST FENCE!)…This might be the most viral fencing youtube video around…12,000+ views and counting!
All together now:
We’re bringing sexy fencing,
those other fencer’s don’t know how to fence,
you think your special with your beat attack,
so parry me and I’ll poke you back…
