My Coaching Philosophy
I believe fencing changes young people’s lives - it is the ultimate leveller where focus and mental agility overcome physical ability. Harnessing children’s imagination, I positively demonstrate how ours is a unique and fully inclusive sport.

Learning to duel provides escapism from our digital world into an active sport that very few experience. Pupils I have taught, not inclined towards team games say it is the ideal sport to find oneself, improve physical and mental well-being which benefits them for the rest of their lives and gives a sense of fulfilment. They are attracted because they participate at their own speed and achieve their own goals.

My ethos of engagement and inclusion nurtures individuality and self-efficacy so participants feel comfortable in their own skin. Burning up to 400 calories per session, participants truly discover their inner Jedi.


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.
