Welcome to the December edition of the Newton Abbot & Totnes Fencing club (NATFC) newsletter. Happy Christmas to all our members and familiy’s.

Just to keep you up to date with news on how Andy Bornemisza (he contracted Legionnaires disease whilst visiting Italy for a Veterans World Championship Sabre tornement). Andy is now out of Intensive Treatnment Unit & onto a ward and has had the tracheostomy removed, so excellent progress.


A little thought by our BAF coach, Jan Lacey :-


‘Accuracy and confidence will only be obtained through the constant repetition of movements, so that they become as automatic and natural as walking.

When fencing or receiving lessons, one must never allow oneself to be tense, relaxation will bring smoothness, precision & speed. Always remember this !!”

Thanks Jan
