My Coaching Philosophy
Hi , I first learned to fence at school & still remember the the thrill of winning medals at a regional level. I have continued to fence throughout my life & maintained a top 100 foil ranking (peaking at 64)for 5 years in my competitive days .
I always helped to run , coach & develop fencers wherever I have been , these days at Wingerworth where I felt privileged to be asked to be chairman.
I love to see fencers of all ages grow in their abilities & confidence from complete beginners to seasoned successful competitors .
I think the biggest thrill in coaching is to guide a young nervous shy child on their fencing journey to be a fully competent & perhaps competitive fencer who in turn helps the next generation to do the same .
Alongside this I also still love to support fencers at competitions & help guide them & their families along the way .
