Testimony

"Tim offers a great introduction to the basics of fencing with variations in activity that allow for learning to take place in a fun, active environment. In three lessons, students learned enough to engage in a mini-tournament that sparked interest for many to seek out extra-curricular interest beyond the classroom. Most importantly, students spent the majority of the class actively engaged both physically and strategically; meeting the ministry expectations for healthy active living. Tim is an engaging instructor who aims to provide young people with a positive learning environment that promotes physical literacy for ALL involved."

“The Fencing Unit that was accomplished in only two days was outstanding! We want to thank Tim for a  great learning experience in a very positive and safe environment. He was an excellent communicator,  modifying activities based on ability level with ease and showed the students that fencing is an excellent workout. The students learned a little about the history of the sport, how competitions work in modern  fencing events, performed excellent lead up drills and finished with a full tournament. Tim is truly  passionate about his sport and he definitely provided an experience that my students will not forget”.
