My Coaching Philosophy
I am an Olympic trialist, 3X world fencing championship athlete and a commonwealth fencer.

Fencing is an inclusive international sport that sets no boundaries on gender, race, class, age or disability.

Having participated in this sport at the highest level, you soon realise that there is beauty in a people’s culture, tradition and values. And it is my job to bring out the best of yours in a way that celebrates your identity and what makes you special.

What separates me from other coaches is my experience on the Olympic circuit and my practical insight on fencing under pressure. Having gone up against Olympians, and being taught by Olympic coaches.

I believe that real life experience is always one’s best teacher. And that no two fencers are the same.

I look forward to bringing out the best in you !
