Brook Dunstan

Head Coach

Level 2 Foil/Level 1 Sabre/ Level 1 Epee: Beginner training, All group courses, individual Lessons (by arrangement)

Brook started fencing at Fioretto in 1997. Between 2000 and 2002 he had the opportunity to train and observe coaching methods in France and now regularly catches up with Fioretto's sister club over there, Escrime Ecuilly. He began coaching foil in 2006 before going on to pass his level 1 sabre and epee coaching.

Always seeking new methods and ideas, Brook has an innovative approach to training and has concentrated on developing group training programs within the club.
