My Coaching Philosophy
My experience as a Coach & Fencer dates back to the early 60s combined with coaching Athletics, Basketball, Boxing, Gymnastics, Judo, Squash, Swimming and Physical Education which has given me many years experience and understanding of the qualities required to be able to compare techniques and methods to help teach, coach and develop fencing. Fencing should be enjoyable and challenging.
I am a Level 5 coach in Foil, Epee & Sabre.
I coach at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.
I also have experience coaching Modern Pentathlon fencing.
