    Soccer. Basketball. Football. Gymnastics. Baseball. Fencing. Fencing? Yes, fencing. A sport that a child can start learning at a young age, and one activity that isn’t normally in the lexicon when it comes to kids and parents talking about the usual suspects of athletic pursuits. The four-year-old Darien Fencing Club, located in the VFW Hall on Noroton Avenue in Darien, is a Mecca for kids from both Fairfield and Westchester counties to discover how fencing can be a foil (of sorts) to the inability to concentrate or focus on a particular task at hand. “Fencing is a sport that is intensely individualistic, yet at its core demands consideration of and respect for others,” Jeffrey Binder, owner of the club, said. “It is a physically demanding sport, that is equally mental.” Darien Fencing Club is a member of the United States Fencing Association and is a fully-insured organization, offering group fencing lessons to children age 7 to 13.

    Great athletes have an uncanny ability to separate. Separate the moment from their environment, their conscious thoughts from their actions and even one part of their personality from the rest. We recently met up with Liana Henderson Semel a kind and articulate sixteen-year-old, Junior Olympic Silver Medalist in Women’s Foil. Inside the Fencing Academy of Westchester, her home base for training, we spoke about her commitment to fencing, her coaches and teammates, and how singing in a jazz ensemble, doing research in genetics, writing and just being a teenager at Horace Greely High School in Chappaqua, New York all fit together. Visit the Fencing Academy of Westchester at FenceWestchester.com. Here Head Coach and Director Slava Grigoriev has brought together an incredible international coaching staff filled with former Olympians and World Champions. His program is dedicated to helping all students gain self-confidence, coordination and the focus necessary to realize their full potential as athletes.
