The British Academy of Fencing (BAF) is the acknowledged coaching organisation for the sport of fencing in the United Kingdom.

We provide a comprehensive programme of support and teaching for coaches both from Britain and abroad.

  • We provide a training system that is 100% focused on the sword in hand acquisition of the skills of a fencing coach.
  • Our curriculum provides for a systematic and logical development of these skills from beginner coach to Fencing Master.
  • Our mission is to develop the practical skills of the fencing coach to the highest possible degree.
  • We provide teaching and support in the technical and tactical skills of coaching any fencer from beginner to Olympic competitor.
  • We support and encourage coaches and Masters in the continual development of their own skills and the modernisation of the sport.
  • We provide a technical foundation from which a coach can then choose to develop as a club, school, leisure or performance coach.
  • We provide an extensive set of supporting documents for these skills.
