This past weekend Houston was the site of the season kick-off for the United States Fencing Association’s Southwest Regional Youth Circuit. This highly competitive series features contests (referred to as bouts) between children aged 10 to14. They are grouped by weapon, age, and in some cases gender. Weapons consist of the traditional Olympic-style fencing swords of saber, epee, and foil, though often scaled down in size for the youngest competitors. The event drew children from as far away as Arizona.

Local fencers from the Salle Mauro Fencing Academy followed the guidance of Salle Mauro Coaches Noura Younis and Dan Gorman led them to numerous bronze, silver and gold medal finishes.
