Dear Founders, Coaches, Staff, Fencers and Parents
The Mortimer Family would like to congratulate Z Fencing on 20 years of hard work, perseverance, challenges, commitment, optimism, achievements and success.
Z Fencing and The Mortimer Family- Something in common: 20th Anniversary.
Twenty years ago Z fencing had a vision of forming a great club to provide fencers not only with the sport skills but with the values that people need: respect, discipline, integrity, effort, care and love.
Twenty years ago, John and I embarked upon the challenge to form a family. I am sure like Z Fencing we were not sure if our "projects" would succeed. We were nervous but we decided to work hard, to make a commitment, and keep positive during the difficulties. Here we are happy and with a sense of pride we have succeeded.
The major success for the founder is called Z Fencing. For us they are called James and Julian.
James and Julian joined Z Fencing at the beginning of 2010. James was nearly 9 and Julian was nearly 7 years old.
We had moved from Adelaide, Australia to live in Singapore. While walking in a shopping centre the boys stopped at a window to see some children dressed in white with masks and swords...of course swords for boys and that age is so cool!
They asked me what the name of that sport was but I did not know. I did know the name in Spanish (my mother tongue): "Esgrima" I said but it did not help.. So I called John who translated it for me. "Fencing" I said. So James and Julian decided that "Fencing" would be for them.
One day while walking in United Square we saw Z Fencing Centre. We walked in and enrolled the boys in a trial session. That trial session turned into a once a week lesson, later in a twice a week, to the extent that I was spending more time in Z Fencing than at home! Having two boys in different weapons, schedules, and centres became the family challenge!
A challenge we have enjoyed, and no regrets!
Fencing has not only been a wonderful sport for James a Julian but also it has given the entire family the opportunity to make friends, to have a sense of belonging, and of course to get to know new places around the world.
Soon we will leave Singapore and Z Fencing will come with us not only in the sea shipment and air freight but most importantly in our hearts.
Thank you all for your support, kindness, patience, teachings, you all have given to James and Julian.
The Mortimer Family
Julian, James, Lorena and John
