About Coach GerryD-By W.M.D.A.
Coaching recreational sport fencing has been part of Coach Gerardo's life since 1987. In that year he attended a fencing coach's Foil and Sabre seminar in Orlando FL. From that day on, he knew that “he was a Fencing Coach". All that was needed now : the skills of "the Fencing Coach".To start his new career, he attended in 1991 and 1992 the United States Fencing Association's (USFA) Coaches College at the Olympic Training Center (OTC), Colorado Springs, founded “Tampa's Fencing Academy” Tampa Florida, and became a lifetime member of the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association. Ten years later at age 62 it was time to retire from his day job to dedicate 25 hours a week in teaching and coaching sport fencing at the Academy and local private schooled. CoachGerryD revisited the Coaches College in 2005 for 3 weeks of coaches training (EPEE, FOIL,SABRE) and was privileged to attended a seven day seminar “Sport Fencing- The Unity of Theory and Practice”, with renowned Polish Fencing Master and Coach Professor Zhigniew Czajkowski. "There is always something more to learn in this sport: better techniques, tactics, pedagogy. Now that the USA has earned there first gold fencing metals at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics, more people are attracted to fencing as a recreational sport. Everyone can succeed in the sport of fencing. All that's needed is love for the game".
On October 2007 Coach GerryD transferred the Academy and job of Head Coach /Director/Owner of Tampa's Fencing Academy (TFA) to Coach Boyco Krastavich, a Bulgarian educated fencing coach and Sports Educator with international competitive experience. Coach GerryD continued teaching at TFA and at summer physical education Olympic fencing credit classes at Berkeley Preparatory School, Tampa FL.
