My Coaching Philosophy
After 37 years of experience as a club member and competitor in the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, Adam has recently qualified as a British Fencing Coach.

Inspired by a love of history and the romance of swordplay, Adam started fencing in the 1980s at City of London School. Like many fencers of his generation, he was forced to learn with a foil. Luckily, in the late 1990s, he joined Haverstock Fencing Club where he discovered the joys of epee along with his future wife, Christine. Two generations of Steiners now fence at HFC.

Having coached friends and family on an informal basis for many years, Adam started his official coaching career in 2021, achieving his Core Coaching qualification at a British Fencing course held at the Hertfordshire Combat Centre. His coaching training is ongoing and he looks forward to gaining further qualifications in the coming months.

Adam is focused on development coaching of the club's younger fencers. He seeks to encourage students to develop a lasting love of the practice and theory of fencing in a safe, enjoyable and respectful environment.
