As an extension of the Loyola Fencing Club, we offer an 8-week youth beginner's class to the Towson community. Starting January 8, classes will meet on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM in the Father George Lounge at Loyola-Blakefield's Wheeler Hall. They will be taught by Coach Larbi Soufiane. Coach Larbi is a three time Moroccan National fencing champion; two championships in foil, one in epee, as well as a 2nd place finish in saber. Larbi represented Morocco at international competitions, including the Mediterranean Games. He has been coaching youth and adult fencers on all levels since 1986. Classes focus on building stamina, confidence and a sense of accomplishment and are offered for kids aged 8 to 14.
