Primary Instructors

A primary instructor in the club.

Alan Anderson

Alan started fencing in 1988 while attending South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. A local businessman started the club in Rapid City and was practicing at the YMCA at that time. Tom Byars was trained by a former Olympic Saberist and had a passion for the sport that he shared with his students. The club was small and informal, but the instruction was first-rate due to the personal attention. In 1990, Alan attended graduate school at Iowa State University where he joined the fencing club at that campus.
