About Us

Master Ivan Carballo began practicing  the sport in the early 1980; he then went on to become a high school physical education teacher. By 1990 he had culminated his studies becoming a specialist in High Performance Fencing.  

 

Along the Way.

There has been many memorable coaches and colleagues along the way but none have impacted my coaching style like Master Margarita Rodriguez; The Golden Left-Handed WOMAN THE GOLDEN LEFT-HANDED WOMAN.

Margarita Rodriguez "THE GOLDEN LEFT-HANDED WOMAN"
 Margarita Rodriguez, better known as "THE GOLDEN LEFT-HANDED WOMAN," has been an example and inspiration for her fencing disciples. The Golden Left-handed Woman, (1947-200_) was a member of the Cuban fencing team for over 18 years and brought numerous international medals to Cuba—making her the most decorated Cuban fencer in the international arena. 
 Rodriguez is also considered the largest medalist winner in the "Ramón Fonst in Memoriam" International Tournament, with 10 gold medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze for a total of 13 medals. Moreover, she participated in four Olympic Games (1968, 72 , 76 and 80). After her retirement from active sports in 1984, she worked as a fencing coach.As a teacher, her work was unsurpassed. She inculcated athletes with values such as: DISCIPLINE, SELFLESSNESS, RESPECT, HUMILITY, COMBATIVITY, TOUGHNESS, and COURAGE, among others. These values are essential and shape the integral personality of athletes. In addition, she is merited for the psychological preparation of her pupils.
