Coaching Achievements

Due to his extraordinary grasp on fencing fitness and footwork, Pawel is often grafting away in the Salle with our young athletes when other fencers are competing.

However, his first solo foray into coaching support at Fencers Club came in March 2016 when he accompanied Rafael Rhys Pollitt to the Challenge Wratislavia, ushering Rafael into sixth position and a place on the winner’s podium.

He then attended then attended  Challenge Wratislavia in 2018 with a much larger squad of FCL fencers most of home where part of the England Squad. Under his guidance, Rafael won the U15 category, and our other fencers had outstanding performances.
