Norman Katz, owner and coach of Tropical Knights Fencing, is a business consultant, worldwide speaker, and a 3-time book author. Norman's third book - "Attack, Parry, Riposte: A Fencer's Guide To Better Business Execution" - combines the strategies and tactics in fencing with real-life business execution examples.
Due to the COVID coronavirus crisis, TKF can no longer be responsible for allowing anyone to borrow fencing gear or equipment: everyone - whether you are trying out fencing or are a member of TKF - must provide their own fencing equipment. You can purchase new equipment for moderate prices from the three equipment dealers listed below. At minimum, all fencers must have the following equipment:
Leg coverings sufficient to protect the legs can be long shorts or preferably workout wear; fencing knickers are not required but are recommended. Fencing shoes are not required; however, running shoes are not recommended due to the real possibility of injury they can cause related to the nature of the footwork in fencing. Therefore, flat-on-the-outside athletic shoes will work. An equipment bag (sold by fencing equipment providers) will be convenient to hold your gear. Please contact TKF if you have any questions about fencing equipment that we can provide guidance on.
