Coaching Philosophy

We believe that Fencing is a lifetime sport. That you can learn and participate in fencing at all stages of life, and reap the benefits of regular physical activity.

The average age of peak performance for fencers is mid-20’s to early 30’s. For a child starting out this may mean their best fencing is two decades away! To achieve their full potential, we believe that above all else the experience must be enjoyable, challenging, and develop a love for the sport.

We believe that every individual member is important. They have different goals and reasons for participating. Different backgrounds, experience, and levels of ability. All are worthy of respect and a safe space at the club.

We know that our members have lives outside of fencing. We aim to support them in maintaining a balance that includes fencing through all stages of life.
