RONALD, William

When and Where Born:
1949

City of Residence:
Denistone, NSW

When and Why they started fencing:
I used to watch 'Zorro' on television and was fascinated by swordplay. Fencing was a sport option at St Andrews Cathedral School and I started there at age 8 in 3rd class. My first coach was the legendary Maestro "Tex" Clark who made the sport fun, stimulating, interesting-and addictive!
