This camp will bring your game to the next level and allow you to acquire a unique insight into collegiate fencing and strategies. It is also a unique opportunity to closely work with one of the best fencing head coaches in NCAA in general and in the Ivy League in particular. Michael Aufrichtig is in his 12th year as the Head Men’s and Women’s Fencing Coach at Columbia University. His coaching style is all about helping fencers maximize their potential. His unique approach focusing on scenario-based practices has helped performance in what many fencers call high-pressured situations when the score is 14-14 or 4-4. He will highlight the mentality, confidence, focus, strip awareness of tactics, and drills the Columbia Fencing team does to feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations. The outcome of this three-day camp will be to provide ideas and tools to use for confidence on the strip, build important habits, and introduce breakthroughs to perform better at competitions.
