Prehistory[edit]

On 12 October 1954 – at the initiative of Emil Beck at the "Gasthaus zum Schwanen" – a fencing division in the Club TSV 1863 Tauberbischofsheim e.V. was founded. First trainings were held in the auditorium of the old high school, later in the gym of the high school and the newly built festival hall in Tauberbischofsheim. In 1955 the first public club tournament was in the "Gasthaus zur Bretze". In 1958 the first fencing piste was purchased.[4]

Founding and construction of the Club[edit]

On June 30, 1967 the fencing division left the TSV 1863 Tauberbischofsheim. On 14 October 1967 the official founding meeting of the Fencing-Club Tauberbischofsheim took place in the "Raststätte Block". 1972 and 1976 new staff rooms, fencing arenas, boarding rooms and training rooms opened. In the same year Tauberbischofsheimer fencers won the first gold medals at Olympic Games. 1983 a new fencing hall was built with 18 fencing pistes and fitness rooms.[4]

Former Athletes[edit]

Former Coaches[edit]

  • Emil Beck, "Founding father" of the Fencing-Club Tauberbischofsheim, a German fencing coach who created a school of fencing sometimes referred to as the "German school" since Beck's influence on German fencing was profound. As a fencing coach, Beck was largely self-taught.[7] Considering Becks medal success, he is one of the most successful coaches in the world (163 medals at Olympic Games, World Championships and European Championships).[8] Beck coined the reputation of the Fencing-Club Tauberbischofsheim in the 1970s as "Tauberbischofsheimer goldsmith" and "Mecca of fencing".[9]
