At last year’s Nationals in San Jose, I was able to sit down with George Nonomura and chat about his fencing career.

Now, George is, and has always been, one of the nicest, friendliest people around.  So when I posed the question about who might have been his nemesis on the strip, I didn’t know quite what to expect.  Surprise!  Nice as he is, he wasn’t ever shy about stepping up to fight when it was called for.  And, as one of the fencers he mentions is soon to be on his way to Rio as an Olympic coach for Team USA Fencing, it seemed like a good time to drop this short clip.

Enjoy!
