Kirk started fencing in 2007 at a White Oaks Leisure Centre in Swanley - where the flumes where long, fun and legendary! He was soon selected for the GB under-17 team and has been in the team ever since. Kirk is now studying for his Masters in Architecture at the University of East London. The combination of studying and being part of British Fencing’s World Class Programme keeps Kirk busy but his ambition to make the GB team for Tokyo 2020 keeps him motivated.
