Halberstadt Fencers’ Club puts the Mission in the Olympics

Been watching the Olympics and looking to get in on the action?  Check out the Halberstadt Fencers’ Club on 17th and S. Van Ness, which besides having one of the raddest murals in the neighborhood also serves as the training grounds for local Olympian Alexander Massialas!  The next time your dumb jock friends try to tell you that everyone in the Mission sucks at sports, ask them if anyone from the Marina is in the Olympics.  Touche!

    Years ago my downstairs neighbor was a competitive fencer. He also shot pistols in competition. He rode a motorcycle at high rates of speed down 101 to his coding job in Silicon Valley. He had so much money! He also had a steady girl. When she wasn’t around he had a parade of alternate girls. During coitus he and his paramour dujour would shake the house so much it would wake one from a dead sleep. Oh and he played guitar. My room mate hated him so much. He would curse him when he saw him leave his house. I was always amused to be so near a super mega man who was in a hexathlon of his own creation. (BTW, he used to fence at Halberstadt)
