Dear Coach Tauber,

It was wonderful to hear that you will be honored, and a scholarship established in your name, at the YU Fencing Reunion. The recognition for all the years you toiled molding a bookish bunch of height challenged (we always had a full sabre team though) premeds (mostly) into a cohesive fencing team is well deserved. I am only sorry that I won’t be able to attend this festive occasion (new granddaughter in OR). I did notice in reviewing the ’63 yearbook that as a team we did rather well with an 11-0 season and we went on to compete at the NY Athletic Club (probably the first time any Jews with yarmulkes set foot in those hallowed halls). My memories of the time spent in the basement gym under your guidance are very positive and I thank you for the life lessons learned in my introduction to competitive sports.

With great affection,

Martin Rosman, MD sabre ‘63


Foilist, leaning towards his opponent without having actually established "right-of-way", which would have required that he have extended his weapon arm fully and threatening a valid target on his opponent, seems to be initiating a fleshe attack. It seems, however, that the initiator on the left is binding his opponent's weapon, which would control the situation by not allowing the otherwise potential threat to remain a non-threat to him while he prepares to release while making the needed extension towards a valid target, which would then require the other fencer to somehow avoid the attack before he could launch one of his own; circa 1968, Yeshiva College Old Gym in the basement of the Main Building. Note please the Fencing Team Banner declaring "Tauber Power". We understand the banner was made by Coach Tauber's daughter Valerie.
