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.
He has coached numerous fencers to Cadet & Junior World & European Championship level, his own children making ten Junior European & World Championships alone, and Gareth making a L16 finish at Junior Worlds. From 2013 to 2016 was involved with the BF program as GB Talent coach.
Today he is a full time professional coach, coaching Fencers and Pentathletes in Epee at various clubs & schools through Surrey & the south east.
Neale will be running the Sunday session and working primarily with the Teenager and Adult members in preparation for competitions .We look forward to a fruitful and successful term under his tutelage.
