Jordan’s fencers are back training together at Al Hussein Youth City for the first time since they were forced to stop in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
All ages using various weapons have returned under the supervision of national coaches Audeh Al Fauri, Anas Al Kayed, Hassan Al Qaneh, Bashar Abu Asi and Ali Abub Zem’, as well as fitness coach Mohammad Jawhar.
Fencers have been doing their best to stay in shape throughout the lockdown, but the coaching team said it was good to have them back.
“We trained over Zoom with coaches following the fencers progress at home,” said Hakam Al Khaldi, board member for the Jordan Fencing Federation.
“But now we are back training together at the federation with an emphasis on ensuring everyone involved is safe and following the new procedures in place, including limiting group numbers.”
The federation has started re-scheduling the local championships and is keeping in contact with the Asian and international bodies in regards to the overseas calendar.
