Fencing

I fence on sabre, a weapon going so fast that milliseconds can separate a hit from being valid or not! I play an active role in the Dutch fencing world and am currently the chairman of SchermCentrum Amsterdam (SCA). In 2016, I led the men's team to silver at the Dutch national championships, and am looking to improve on that...

Club

SchermCentrum Amsterdam is the largest fencing club in the Netherlands, with 200+ members. SCA features youth to senior, recreational to Olympic, and foil to sabre to epee fencers.

As chairman of SCA, I am tasked with keeping the bigger picture in sight. Whether by overlooking monthly projects, crafting policies or representing SCA on a national scale, I help SCA build towards the future.

Prior to fencing at SCA, I fenced at the Amsterdam Student Fencing Club Esprit (ASSV Esprit), which I chaired from 2014 to 2016.

Trainer

I have been training with Daniel Nivard since 2011, and more recently been fencing under the tutorage of Arash Sheikh.
