    One of my students has a blind friend in NY who wants to learn to fence. I know it can be done, as we had a bliond kid do foil in Burbank.

    I'm presuming this is in NYC and not elsewhere in the state.

    Any sugestions of clubs that could take him in?

    Believe it or not, New York is a big state and NYC is a big city. Can you narrow it down.

    Not really...all he said was New York...and he's on a cruise now, so I can't ask him.

    I think there was a club (class?) for blind kids in Boston....Might have been at a school for the blind.
