My Coaching Philosophy
I enjoy fencing, and as a coach I would like to infect other people with that enjoyment. I feel that fencing is a multi-faceted hobby / activity / sport, which has a rich and long history on its way to developing into a modern sport. I believe that fencing is not just about teaching people to fence; but in developing them as a person, and as a side effect getting them a little fitter. So wherever their interest comes from, books, movies, history, or as a sport, I want people to enjoy fencing; whatever their ability and aims.


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.
