My Coaching Philosophy
Developing the athlete in accordance with their own performance goals and ambitions, through a disciplined structured plan.
My main weapon is epee, and have also worked with modern pentathletes. I also have experience working with disabled athletes.
While seeing myself in the Community/Development coaching space, I am keen to work more in the Performance space.
I am also interested in historical swordsmanship, with some experience in HEMA and re-enactment.
