My Coaching Philosophy
My coaching philosophy is:

1. Students should fence because they enjoy it.

2. Growth mindset is essential. Losing and “messing up” is part of the process. In my eyes you only “fail” if you do not give your best effort and you only succeed if you work harder than your opponents.

3. Better people make better fencers. Everything I do is to help my students become the best they can be - not just at fencing - but at life. I tell them that, “This path is not easy, but as long as you are getting better every day and giving your best effort you are heading in the right direction and great things will happen.”
