My Coaching Philosophy
I came to fencing late and after a few seasons fencing epee I became a better referee than fencer. I had six years as an FIE epee referee before I had to retire. At the same time I learned to coach and have helped to develop Malvern Hills Sword Fencing, where I have been able to introduce adults and children to fencing and to support our professional coach.


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.
