Diamond Blade is a dynamic fencing club for all ages. Everyone is welcome! We promote elite-level fencing amongst school children and adults alike in and around London, making this age-old sport accessible to all. Fencing builds discipline and control and therefore instills self-confidence. It's the best all-around mental, physical and psychological work-out one can ever have. The life-long affirmative benefits by engaging in fencing are irrevocably transformative.
Led by European Champion & Hungarian National Champion Gabriella Hopka-Varga, Diamond Blade's team has a combined experience of 40 years of international competitive and coaching experience. Gabriella, with our team of world-class coaches aspire to get everyone to kit up, fence and have fun!

I really enjoyed being taught fencing by Gabriella, who is patient, yet strict, inspiring & very helpful.
She motivates you in the class & then sends you helpful technique tips & videos,
so you can keep the practise up at home. Sheryl is super organised & working alongside Gabi,
makes sure you have an enjoyable experience.

Gabriella is an excellent coach who can train foil on all levels, from complete beginners up to international standards. She is very professional and a team player who interacts effectively with
everyone involved with the school clubs be it parents, colleagues or the management team.
Her students greatly enjoy her coaching style and are continuously making real progress.
