Merseyside & Elite Epee February Results

Owen Jordan won another Elite Epee title last weekend with Dan McGlade making the top 8 at the same event. In the U14 Boy’s competition there was a silver medal for Levi Randall-Morgan & a Bronze for Florin Mirica. In total, 13 Leon Paul Epee fencers took part over the weekend and coach Keni was a blur running between pistes coaching everyone!

The week before saw Justine Geroudet win a Bronze medal at the Merseyside with Tom Storey picking up the best Novice prize. Well done guys on a long road trip up north. Finally, while Justine and Tom were doing their thing in Liverpool, the U23 National Epee Championships were taking place in London. George Morris finished 2nd & Owen Jordan 3rd with Same Boyle in 5th place, a strong showing from the young guns with 3 fencers in the top 8.

Merseyside & British U23 Championships

This week saw Justine Geroudet win a Bronze medal at the Merseyside with Tom Storey picking up the best Novice prize.  Well done guys on a long road trip up North.

While Justine and Tom were doing their thing in Liverpool, the U23 National Epee Championships were taking place in London.  George Morris finished 2nd & Owen Jordan 3rd with Same Boyle in 5th place, a strong showing from the young guns with 3 fencers in the top 8.

New Coach, more success

It is with great pleasure and excitment that I can annonce Kenichi Yamamoto is joining the coaching team at Leon Paul Epee.  Keni is a former Japanese International Fencer and graduated from the same coaching university in Hungary as Head Coach David.  He spent many years running Truro Fencing Club’s Epee & Foil program and as soon as we heard he was available we made him an offer he couldn’t refuse!

Keni will be heading up a new Junior Epee Program at the club as well as working alongside David & Georgina with the adult group.

Also, congratulations to So Fi & Idiris Ali for winning the Cambridge Winter Open (Jan 8th). Great start to 2017 for Leon Paul Epee.
