Training

Adelaide Hills Fencing Club trains on Thursday night and Saturday mornings, during the DECD school terms.

Meet our most regular team of coaches.


Dov Spinks

Dov is an accredited Level 1 Foil & Epee coach. He has been coaching since 2012, and still actively competes in the Open and Veteran circuits.

 Coach Quote:

Distance equals Time.

Peter Mayer

Stalwart of the club, professor, renaissance man; Peter embodies the truly classical fencer!

 Coach Quote:

The fencing lesson with the foil gives the student the precision and quickness of the eye, the speed of the hand, the vigor of the calf, the length of breadth...It teaches [them] to search, to discover, to surprise, and to [thrust and hit the opponent]

--Claude La Marche

Erwin Lam

Erwin is our newest addition to the coaching team. Liberal, lithe, and oh-so-lefthanded!

 Coach Quote:

Do the thing!
