Coaching Rates Group Individual
I have a level 3 coach since 2012 through the BAF. I coach Foil, Sabre and Epee. I worked as a full-time coach until the Covid pandemic. I am Head Coach at Norfolk Fencing Club. I coach in and around Norfolk, Suffolk and am happy to travel and have even undertaken one off day sessions the other side of the country. I am also a registered Laser pistol coach with Pentathlon GB. I have studied with the Open University on a Sports Science Degree basing it around fencing. My current rates are £25 per hour individual sessions. £40 an hour per group session.

My Coaching Philosophy
I believe that fencing is a great sport and can be tailored to the individual or to that of a group. I make my sessions fun, informative and current with what is happening on the competition stage. I want to make fencing inclusive, accessible and affordable to all. That's why I carry all my own kit enough for a class of 20.
