Kaden's First Fencing Tournament

Kaden had a fencing tournament this Saturday, his first.  I was a little nervous because he is pretty young in his class and I had no idea what the tournament would be like.  Once we got there and got registered, I realized that he would be fencing all of the fencers who fence with a foil.  Yes, that is correct, all age groups.  He was a little nervous about this, but ended doing great and having a good time.  

I really appreciate the camaraderie of the fencing club.  There is one boy named Dillion who assists during Kaden's class.  He seems very good, but I really have no idea.  Anyway, once Kaden learned that he would be fencing Dillion, he was a little nervous.  From his perspective that is the same as fencing your teacher, a little intimidating.  Dillion, was great and helpful and helped Kaden score some points and encouraged him.  I was tremendously grateful and thankful that there are still genuinely good people in this world that help others out of the goodness of their heart.

  1. Way to go Kaden! He is brave. Thanks for the pictures. I loved the post about your Daddy-Daughter campout! Take care!
