My Coaching Philosophy
I believe the relationship between technical, tactical, physical and mental skills in fencing is so deeply intertwined as to make their separation into different skill sets meaningless. I aim to coach fencers to embrace the complexities and the exacting requirements of fencing, and to understand the incremental gains required for us to reach personal goals which may at first seem very distant.


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.
