The Order of the Rose was established as a company open to anyone who wanted to learn how to fence, without fear of ridicule or judgement. We welcome safe, honorable, fun-loving people who desire to become skilled swordsmen.
Each one of us must develop the mature emotional intelligence skills required to better understand, empathize and negotiate with other people — particularly as the community has become more global. Otherwise, success will elude us in our lives and fencing careers.
