Beecher’s 6th Grader Trained by Rogue Fencing Academy Is Heading to USA Fencing National Championships

Beecher Road School 6th grader and Woodbridge resident Adam Liu, age 11, recently qualified for the 2022 USA Fencing National Championships & July Challenge.  Adam has been trained as an epee fencer since September 2021 at Rogue Fencing Academy, the best epee-fencing club in CT located in Woodbridge.

Coached by head coach Sandra Marchant, a national golden medalist and a 3-time USA World Team member, Adam has won silver, bronze, and several top 8 medals in Youth 12 Men’s Epee (Y12ME) in Regional Youth Circuit (RYC) tournaments.  The RYC tournaments usually are joined by a few hundred fencers from 9 northeast states including ME, NH, VT, MA, NY, RI, CT, NJ, and PA.  Adam ranks 67th on the USA Official National Standings in Y12ME.  He is the highest ranked epee fencer under 12 from CT.

Adam has also challenged himself in Youth 14 Men’s Epee (Y14ME) and is advancing his rank step by step.  He has been qualified to join the USA Fencing National Championships & July Challenge, which is scheduled to take place July 2-11, 2022 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Many other fencers aged 4 years to 80 years from Woodbridge, Cheshire, Bethany, Orange, New Haven and other counties in CT are enjoying the training in the Rogue Fencing Academy.  Most of them are trained with incredible patience, self-regulation, courage, dignity, strategy, and flexible thinking in the Rogue Fencing Academy.  Many youth fencers are not only achieving their success on strips of tournament, but also on their academic development.

Anybody interested in fencing is welcome to schedule a trial lesson at roguefencingacademy.com.
