Soren Thompson was born in San Diego, currently resides in New York City, and has been fencing for 28 years. He represented the United States at numerous international championships, including two Olympic Games, 11 World Championships, two Pan American Games, and two World University Games.
His highest US ranking was #1 and highest World Ranking was #7. He is a Team World Champion, Pan American Team Champion, two-time
Individual and Team Americas Zonal Champion, 9-time US National Champion, NCAA Champion, US Junior Olympic, and US Junior National Champion.
Following a career-threatening injury in 2007, Soren developed a functional, process-based system that he used to entirely revamp his approach to fencing. The outcome was a rise from #250 in the world to #7 in one season and numerous career best results at US and international championships.
ABOUT THE CLINIC
This one-day clinic will be an introduction to Soren’s system with an emphasis on developing physical, mental and technical capabilities to create a cohesive fencing “game.” Elements of Soren's system are applicable for fencers of all levels and can help broaden athlete perspectives and improve results.
Expect a full day of drills, lecture, and bouting.
The clinic is open to all ages and all levels, but participants should be able to execute the fundamentals with proficiency.
