My Coaching Philosophy
I have been coaching fencing since 2002, operating as a community coach at Huntingdonshire Fencing Club, offering basic introduction to new fencers via our 10 week beginners courses as well as giving one to one lessons.
For me it is about the enjoyment and fun of fencing, the ability to fence many types and levels of fencers and always being able to learn from everyone you fence.


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.
