Try Fencing at the Consulate!

On Wednesday, April 6th, the Consulate will host fencing classes to celebrate International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, which was originally created in 2013 at the 67th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Article 1 of the International Charter of Physical Education and Sport of UNESCO recognizes sport as a fundamental right that conveys fundamental principles such as mutual respect, teamwork, fairness and gender equality. With its drawing power and capacity to bring people together, sport is an instrument of peace and contributes to economic and social development.


Fencing, an increasingly popular sport, develops self-confidence, physical ability and discipline. Instruction during the 45-minute classes at the Consulate will be provided by Sheridan Fencing Academy, a world-renowned fencing school in New York. The introductory classes are designed for adults and teenagers: the first class will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. and the second from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

If you are interested in participating, please send an e-mail to the following address: A contribution of $ 10 is required.
