This was one of the first interviews for Coach Silvia (hiding in the left). It was on 2007 -yesterday-, when she was working at another project with honorable Maitre Sanchez at Caracas Pedagogical Institute (An university for future educators).
We post this memory here because you can still hear Coach saying:
" Fencing and life are the same thing. You teach (your students) to differentiate if a situation is rather a difficulty or an opportunity, in order to take the right decision" We always say: whatever you learn in fencing will help you on and off the strip.
Other remarks include: "Fencing is strength expressed with beauty. What started as a fight for personal defense has become a very refined and artistic sport" " In the training session, the athlete works on physical conditions such as strength, speed and coordination, as well as logical and tactical thinking and fast response".
Most of the students at that time are mothers and great role models in their communities,, today. We certainly keep this time and memories in our hearts.
