The British Academy of Fencing wholeheartedly supports the right of its brother academies to set their own standards and requirements.

Therefore, any coach who wishes to be trained or examined by us and comes from a country which already has an Academy of Fencing Masters must provide the following.
Letter of consent from the President of his/her Academy
