When Hans Halberstadt came to the US, he created more than just a fencing club. The German national fencing champion and Olympian created a tradition. A tradition inspired by his passion for the sport and his dedication to inspire others. The Halberstadt Fencers' Club was a place where fencing champions were made and life-long friendships flourished. Today, the Halberstadt Fencing Foundation continues that tradition.
The Halberstadt Fencing Foundation is a 501c3 which supports the growth of youth fencing through scholarship and outreach programs, the development of coaching and teaching skills, and the expansion and improvement of the club's facilities. Many of these programs are well underway and new ideas to continue to advance the sport of fencing are on the horizon.
There is much more to accomplish and we need your support. Hans' commitment to young and old, to recreational and competitive fencers alike, influenced the lives of many Bay Area people... people like you. Aspiring fencers deserve that same opportunity. Please contact a member of the Board if you'd like more information about how you can help.
