My Coaching Philosophy
When I was ten, my mother brought me to the local sports club and asked me to choose an activity. I was not keen on physical education and would have rather stayed at home, however, I picked fencing because I was shy hence wearing a mask suited me well. This turned out to be one of the best choices I have ever made in my life: I struggled at the beginning, but gained confidence, agility, speed and strength and managed to get to an honourable level in my teenage years.
Since then I have lived in 13 different countries due to my job but have always found places and people with whom I could continue my sport . Now with my two sons grown up, I have more time to enjoy and share my passion and experience by coaching others which for me is an investment into the future of the sport.


In order for a coach to show on the register we confirm that they meet *minimum* eligibility standards - in terms of suitable criminal record checks, minimum safeguarding training, and minimum entry level coaching qualifications. For more information on minimum standards please see here.

BF does not currently provide an additional verification process in relation to the other information supplied by coaches which shows above. Coaches can choose to provide as much or as little detail as they wish. However, if you have any concerns in relation to the information a coach is providing on the register you can contact us here.

Coaches are encouraged to work within their qualifications and competencies, and if they don't, they are not insured. For more information click here.

It is a sign of good practice that coaches have updated and recent (last 6 years) British Fencing coaching qualifications and assessments. For more information click here.
