When he stopped competing in 2003, he was asked to coach at a local club in Wimbledon. His children started fencing and he eventually joined the cadet & junior GB coaching team. In 2010/11 he joined the FIE coach education program & trained under Octavian Zidaru in Zagreb and Budapest, gaining his FIE Maitre D’Armes. He is a BF level 5 registered Epee coach.

British Fencing AASE Programme
If you are a 16-18 year old fencer who has completed GCSE year and are ranked in the top 40 (for your age on any national ranking list) you are eligible to apply for the British Fencing AASE programme.
What is AASE?
It is a Level 3 qualification based around Pearson Edexcel qualifications in Achieving Excellence in Sports Performance and Understanding Sports Performance; designed for fencers who have the realistic potential to achieve excellence and are seeking to perform at the highest level. The programme will cover all areas of fencing and this innovative and exciting sporting programme will help you to develop as an athlete and fencer.
You can find more information and an application form on the British Fencing web site at http://www.britishfencing.com/development/aaseprogramme/ or email Neil Brown firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to 17 year old James Russell who has been selected as part of the GB U20 team to fence in the Luxembourg World Cup in September.
Unfortunately James had a tough time at the 2016-17 Junior U20 Nationals due to taking part in a 50 mile overnight walk 3 nights before with his school. This left him exhausted to the point of collapse in the Last 16 bout, but he managed to continue and went on to finish 6th after putting up a huge effort in the quarter final against the GB #1.
Once again many congratulations to both James and his Coach Steven Paul.
