Richard Gomez still got his fencing prowess

Richard Gomez wants to pass on his fencing skills to the next generation.

The actor, sportsman, and now Ormoc mayor wanted to raise a new breed of fencers, so he hosted his very own training program for aspiring kids in the city. His first order of business: a show-and-tell drill of how to play the sport.

“I’ve represented our country in many sea games and came home victorious. Coach Benny Garcia and I are teaching epee fencing here in Ormoc and promoting the sport to give our youth the opportunity to play the sport and hopefully they become really good worthy of being with the national team in the future,” Gomez said.
