Sensational SeptemberJon Willis
The 2018-2019 season has begun with a flurry of fantastic results. Leon Paul Epee fencers of all ages have found success at competitions ranging from Boys U12 Elite Epee Moulton to The Hampshire Veterans Open. This success has been catalysed by both the continued hard work of Kenichi Yamamoto and the arrival of our new coach, Bence Juhasz.
Coach Keni commented “After the summer, we start the season again. We have had a hard schedule, each category had weekend competition. The youngest fencers had three consecutive weeks of competitions, but we got good results and many medals! This is the result from a hard summer of training but still we have just begun season many of our fencers are training for Commonwealths and World Cups.”
Certainly, The Cadet & Junior British Championships, carrying a large amount of national ranking points, was a very important competition for our younger fencers. Some highlights were Nick Grimshaw winning a bronze medal and Ed Scott-Payne, Isabella Summers and Eleanor Taylor all achieving a quarter-final finish. Congratulations!
