Bio: I started fencing when I was 7 years old at my local club in Worcester after being inspired by Peter Pan and Zorro! After years of classical training by Worcester based John Harding, I was invited to join a top London club to become a competitive fencer. This path lead me to Ziemek Wojciechowski, the Senior Men’s Foil Olympic Coach, and a full scholarship to attend the prestigious Harrow School as their lead fencer.
