Nathan Newton (Senior Coach – Foil, Epee)

I have been a member of HVFC since 2012, regularly competing in foil and epee, and I am now a club committee member. I have been coaching since 2014, and in 2016, I completed the Level 1 Oceania Fencing Master Academy accreditation.

I enjoy working with fencers of all ages and abilities, with a particular passion for introducing beginners to the world of fencing, and supporting the development of our intermediate and competitive level fencers.

Highlights of my fencing career include 2017 representation of New Zealand in Australia for the senior foil and epee, as well as competing at the Oceania Championships, as a junior in 2016, and again as a senior on 2017. I also compete regularly on the national and region stage.
