Fencing for Women

In a new initiative Fioretto's lady fencing coaches have begun a drive to establish a women's fencing group on Wednesdays during the day. The session is for mothers, professionals with part-time or irregular hours, and women who have retired from the workforce. It aims to provide a safe environment where women can feel comfortable exploring the art of fencing, learn new skills, challenge each other and keep fit in a fun and supportive environment.

 william 2016   Fioretto's U15 and Cadet team at the 2016 national championship achieved fantastic results in both foil and epee. William took the U15 foil champion title in a strong field including an impressive line up from Singapore. Peter was runner up, silver medallist, in the U15 epee showing great form in a strong field as well, and in his first tournament back from nearly 3 months off for injury.

The Fencing Victoria Schools League Championship came to the grand finale at the beginning of August. Fioretto boys and girls have been taking part throughout the series. Most notably in the Jnr Secondary Foil division. This division has been dominated throughout the season by Nathan M, with 4 straight victories, but also closely backed up by training partners Josh and William. The running joke this year has been the consistancy of their podium finishes. 4 times in a row. Nathan 1, Josh 2 and William 3. This set up Nathan in a position where only a disaster could rob him of the title, but true to form the boys battled it out in the last round, and for once the results got varied: William 1, Nathan 2 and Josh 3. Nathan took the Jnr Secondary Foil title for 2015 in confident style. Well done Nathan, and well done boys.
