Coach Canlas disclosed that the Warrior Fencers have been training rigorously since November 2017, even through the holiday break, for their title defense in the upcoming UAAP competition. Furthermore exposure and participation in various fencing competitions give the fencers added experience. He acknowledges the pressure to maintain the UAAP winning streak of UE’s fencing teams, but they are doing everything they can to defend their titles and win them for UE once more.

Let us support now the UE Red Warriors Fencing Teams as they defend their titles in the UAAP Season 80 Fencing Tournament on February 8 to 11 at the PSC Fencing Center.

Good luck and Godspeed, Warrior Fencers! Go fight, Red and White! GO FIGHT, RED AND WHITE!
