Coaches

Head Coach / Owner:

Russell Gibson

Coach Russell grew up in Campbell County, just south of Lynchburg. Though he had always wanted to fence, there were no clubs or fencing centers that he knew of in town. Shortly after moving to Denver, Colorado in 2003, Russell enrolled in his first beginner fencing class at the Denver Fencing Center. After just one session, he was hooked–or more accurately: skewered.  When walking to the car after that first hour-long class, he told his wife that he would be fencing for the rest of his life. Now, Russell and his family have moved back to Lynchburg, and he is anxious to share a sport he loves with the city he loves.
