Fence Your Best

Haim Hatuel started stabbing his kids at age 5. This is Delila and Maor Hatuel’s family childhood memory. They are now Israeli fencing champions.
Haim Hatuel is a native of Morocco who arrived in Acre when he was 15 years old. A day after his release from the Israel Defense Forces, Haim saw an ad that changed his life: “The best for fencing.” Haim was accepted into a fencing academy, which was a social sport initiative aimed at turning street kids into law abiding citizens who would go on to pursue a career.
Over the next 45 years, Haim Hatuel built a fencing empire in Acre. Just before the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, the family empire is about to crash.
