During that time Moataz participated in many national and international competitions. As a member, he fenced for the Prestigious National Team for 10 years.
When he received the opportunity to use his professional experience in the United States, he was very proud to not only represent Egypt but also be able to work with other international fencers in this country.  Moataz currently coaches young boys and girls from ages 5-15 years old. He coaches basic foundations and techniques of fencing. He also serves as a referee at USA Fencing tournaments throughout the region.
From Moataz: "This sport is very rewarding yet demanding. Fencing requires commitment and passion. However, the results are tremendously beneficial and leave you having a powerful workout regimen, also building your physical strength and stamina. Not to mention the ability to process very quickly, mentally and physically.
In essence, fencing is referred to as “Playing a physical game of chess”.
