Ben is one of the country’s leading fencers. His most recent accomplishment was the silver medal at the British National Championships in April 2016, after taking a gold medal in the Men’s Foil Team Event at the European Games in Baku in June 2015.
In 2014, Ben captained the England Men’s Foil Team to a top podium position in the Men’s Team Foil at the Commonwealth Games in Largs Scotland.
Equally, Ben is a qualified coach and one of the highest-ranked men’s fencers to coach on a regular basis. He values the importance of giving back to a sport that he loves. Expert in fencing-specific strength & conditioning, he also works with all Fencers Club London’s young fencers to develop and hone their competitive fencing skills, attitude and technique.
Ben says “In my coaching, I am passing on every technique I have learned in the salle, every tactic I have tried on the piste and every great feeling that I have experienced in competition. To see the young fencer taking all those lessons on board is a terrific reward.”
