Aly Khamis is a former highly internationally ranked competitor with over 20 years of combined fencing and coaching experience. As a native of Alexandria, Egypt he was recruited at the age of 12 to join the Egyptian National Team. As a competitor he held top international rankings until moving to the U.S. to coach at the age of 21. Coaching here for the past 19 years, he has taken numerous students from beginners to become national and internationally ranked fencers, earning top standings with the United States Fencing Association. As a concurrent Vice President for the United States Fencing Association North Texas Division, he has made it a priority to commit to providing North Texas residents with quality fencing instruction.
Michele Hampton-Khamis is an adult fencer and co-owner of the club. With Coach Aly, she has run two successful clubs that have produced national and internationally ranked fencers. She not only is a certified personal trainer, but she also frequently coaches the beginner and intermediate classes.
