May 27, 2020, update: The best way to describe my Cracovia students: Consistency, dedication, and determination!
Since March 26, we completed 36 online classes…Yes… 36 classes! (due to Covid-19 closing).
The good news is that Cracovia will be reopening in the not-so-distant future. Please check in often!
March 16, 2020, COVID-19 update:
Starting today, Cracovia will be closed until at least end of the March.
Like most of you know, our own Linus Rastegar after 12 years learning foil fencing at Cracovia under my direction and completing the high school moved to his native country Austria to continue his fantastic fencing path.
He is living in Vienna and dedicated his time only to fencing for the last eight months: daily private lessons with Austrian Olympic Coach Evgeni Pickman! conditioning, lifts, bouting and competing around Europe (well… I miss that part)
Here are the latest news: last weekend Linus took bronze medal at Austrian Junior Championship!
He got enough points to make top 10 in Austria in seniors and qualify for the Grand Prix in Shanghai, China. Linus received an invitation from the Chinese Fencing Federation to
train at the Olympic Training Facility in Peking a few days before the
Grand Prix in Shanghai. BRAVO!
