FeNZNZ Secondary Schools Championships 2010 Christchurch 13-15 July

For information and updated entry form (as of 28 June) http://www.fencing.org.nz/files/v3_NZSS2010.doc

28 June

Hello everyone,

Following feedback regarding the fees, please be advised that these have been reduced. The first weapon entry is now $50, the second weapon entry is now $35. The teams entry is now $45.

With clarification from FeNZ, the teams event has to be split into two events - one the regional teams as selected from all fencers for the region and the second being a schools event with teams coming from single schools. My apologies for any confusion regarding this. Both teams events will take place on the day specified in the timetable already and the school event will follow the regional event.

I have included an updated entry form. This is also a reminder that all entries must be received by July 9.

Regards
Rachel

FeNZCongratulations to our new North Island Champions; Katherine Taylor (Mid-South), Women's Sabre; Judith Flitsar (North), Women's Foil; Francoise Henner(South via Switzerland), Women's Epee; Luke Robertson (Mid-South), Men's Sabre; Paul Hentschel (Central), Men's Epee; Michael Hoskins (North), Men's Foil.

Well done to all the finalists, and thanks to all the participants for making the events so great. We enjoyed your passion and enthusiasm.

Thank you to all the referees and everyone assisting with the support and organisation of the event, and finally to our hosts Fencing North for providing the opportunity for this great event.

There were many special moments. A magnificent bout was fenced  in the Men's Foil DE between the youngest competitor, Clovis Dyson aged 13 and the oldest competitor Rex Hefferen aged 72, showing we are a "sport for all". Rex had a very good day and reached the last 8. He also won the Richard Peterson Trophy for Style.

Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZMonique Coleman of Wellington's Hutt Valley Fencing Club struck Gold for New Zealand, twice, to take the Oceania Champion’s title in the individual Women's Foil and Women’s Epee events.

Monique, our new double Oceanic Champion lined up in the Women’s Epee Team event with Nancy Liu (Auckland University Fencing Club) and Susan Grant-Taylor (HVFC). With some great team work, they combined strongly. They won and took a third gold medal and the Women’s Epee Team Oceania Champion title for New Zealand, a Champion’s title each for Nancy and Susan, making it a hat trick of gold around Monique’s neck.

"It was great for our fencers, to be able to fence and perform against the strong fencers from Australia, New Caledonia and for the first time the very good fencers from Tahiti." said Susan-Grant Taylor, our Association’s President. "The New Caledonians presented a wonderful event and were very welcoming."

2009-04-04 19:16 - Round the Regions "AGM Report"
Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZFencing Central and Mid-South Annual General Meetings held.

Fencing Central AGM – new executive elected:
Ken Claridge President; Jeremy Peters (Secretary); Peter Kim Treasurer

Fencing Mid South AGM-  executive re-elected unopposed:
Keith Mann( President), Carville Stewart (Secretary) Geoff Low (treasurer)

“One area continues to be weak and we must find ways and means to attract adults to join the sport and provide both men and women with programmes suitable for their introduction and development,” Keith Mann said.

Mr Mann also congratulated the many initiatives from last year which increased fencing activity and made special mention of  Canterbury’s new “School League” (meets on Friday evenings at the Fencing Institute, Jack Hinton Drive), the founding of the Sabre Club (same venue Wednesday evenings) and the well supported and well run Under 13 competition and training week-end in December.

Mr Keith Mann (President) reported that in up dating the accounts the true position of Fencing Mid-South(Canterbury region) shows an operating loss and a capital reduction. “It is vital that all fencers contribute to the running costs of clubs, Council and National Association by paying the fees that have been set,” he said and “well done to the Clubs that have taken action to establish and put into effect a clear fee structure.”

2007-10-03 15:54 - NZ at the 2007 World Championships - St Petersburg
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZJessica Beer is our only fencer representing New Zealand at the 2007  World Championships in St Petersburg, Russia. Jessica Beer started well in the Women’s Individual Epee event. Three cliff hanger bouts won 5-4, by the narrowest of 1 hit margins, set the scene for Jessica to gallop away in the first round with 5 victories from six bouts; (Monika Sozanska (GER) 2-5,  Diana Romagnoli-Takouk (SUI) 4-5, Lydiya Vorobiyov (ISR) 1-5, Nina Westman (SWE) 4-5, Kristina Kuusk (EST) 4-5. Only one fencer was able to slow Jessica down. Jessica met her match with a 0-5 loss to Tatyana Ruban (KGZ).

Jessica having qualified 24th, missed exemption from the preliminary tableau of 64 so had to compete for a direct entry to the top 64 Direct Elimination Tableau where she confronted Olga Aleksejeva (EST). A tough bout with the Estonian leading at the end to take the victory 15-11 and bringing Jessica’s good run to an end. Jessica Beer’s final placing 65th out of 128 fencers.

2007-09-07 15:41 - Tony Ellis - A Final Salute
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZWe are advised that recently Tony Ellis of Wellington passed away. He  was a well known Wellington lawyer. In his younger days Tony was also well known on and around the pistes, especially in his days at University. Though never winning a National individual Championship fencers were pleased to be in the same team with him rather than against him. He was an active supporter of University fencing. He was manager for the first New Zealand University tour to Australia.

Our Association extends its condolences to his family on his passing, and with many fond memories of Tony, I am sure we all join in a final salute to Tony Ellis.

There is no “limit of validity” or “specified duration” for use by fencers of equipment carrying the approved FIE label.

Also at all competitions, irrespective of it having an FIE label or not, equipment must conform to the rules for the event and the “on the piste” conditional testing carried out by the referees and weapon control.

2007-06-12 05:24 - Commonwealth Championships agreed as focus for High Performance Programme
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAt a FeNZ meeting on 2 June the Executive endorsed a proposal that the Commonwealth Junior and Senior Championships, scheduled for 2009 and 2010 respectively, become the designated focus events for the high performance programme over the next three years.  In addition, it was agreed that FeNZ would investigate submitting a bid to run the 2009 Junior Commonwealth Championships.

While there are a number of reasons why it is deemed appropriate to target these events, it was agreed that this level of competition accurately reflects our current stage of development and also the SPARC requirement that we compete in events “that are of significance to New Zealanders”.

One immediate impact of the decision to target Commonwealth Championships is that participation by FeNZ mandated teams in competitions between now and the two Commonwealth events will focus primarily on preparing for those events rather than simply the competition in question. 

In order to assist to determine demands on support that may be required for both individuals and teams over the next three years can you please review the attached form which lists a number of competitions that we believe may be relevant to preparation for the two Commonwealth Championships and indicate whether or not you intend to be available to compete in them.

2007-01-19 12:52 - Planning Group - Change
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZDue to the positive response to planning, the executive have chosen to change the planning approach so as to ensure everyone who wishes to participate can have the opportunity to present ideas and to allow all suggestions to be fully considered. The current time table would have resulted in having to limit discussions, consideration and the planning effectiveness due to time constraints. This limitation was considered to be inappropriate as we wish to appropriately accommodate everyone in the process.

Consequently, the executive will form a Planning Group with several seconded members who will engage in a “Planning Preparation”. We will seek preliminary information in written form so it can be circulated before the planning meetings for wide consideration.

Thank you to everyone for their expression of interest in the planning. We wish to include as many people as possible in the planning process in the most effective way we can.

Further details to folllow regarding the next steps.

Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZIn the 2007 New Years Honours, Mr Keith Stuart Mann, of Christchurch, was announced as Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to sport, in particular fencing.

We received the following message from Keith Mann MNZM: 

"I would like to record my appreciation to the Association for its support and for the principal part it has played over the years in building the foundation for the nomination and subsequent award I received in the New Years Honours."

"As with any such national award to an individual it is also recognition of the input and efforts of many people. My thanks to them and those involved in the nomination."

"It is rewarding from a personal viewpoint but it is good for publicising fencing and it is nice to see that a minor sport such as ours can receive recognition in this way."

2006-12-18 22:12 - Sporting Contacts With Fiji - Government ban
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZHon Trevor Mallard, Minister for Sport and Recreation, has advised our Association by memo, the details of the Government decision to decline to issue visas for certain forms of sporting contact with teams and individuals from Fiji.

In essence "All sports people who are representing Fiji or Fiji national or club teams for sport will be prevented from entering New Zealand for the purposes of sport".

Notwithstanding the above "where New Zealand is hosting a regional or international tournament that obliges New Zealand to accept participants  from Fiji, they will be allowed to enter New Zealand if they meet regular immigration requirements. However, if any of the participants, officials or supporters are subjects of the government ban on the miltary and any coup associates, these individuals will not be permited to enter New Zealand."

The Government will not prevent New Zealand sports people traveling to Fiji.

The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) has recommended against non-essential travel to Fiji. Up-to-date travel and security advice  regarding the situation in Fiji can be accessed on the MFAT web site at http://www.safetravel.govt.nz

2006-12-13 15:46 - FeNZ Advice to SPARC - regarding recent events in Fiji
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZRecent events in Fiji resulted in Sport and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC) requesting information from our sport and others regarding sporting contacts with Fiji, to allow SPARC to provide informed advice for the New Zealand Minister for Sport and the Minister for Foreign Affairs regarding future sporting contacts with Fiji.

The advice provided to SPARC by Fencing New Zealand is as follows:

“Fencing New Zealand does not have the mandate or mechanism to allow restricted contact or sanctions against a national federation or their athletes who are members of a national federation recognized by our international federation, the Fédération Internationale d’Escrime (FIE) and our affiliated body, the Oceania Fencing Confederation. We do not have a mechanism that will permit our organisation or members to restrict sporting contact. Such actions would contravene the spirit and requirements of our fundamental rules and constitutions.”

We also advised them that in 2007 Fencing New Zealand will be hosting an international event, the Oceania Fencing Championships. Also Fencing New Zealand is a member of the Oceania Fencing Confederation, which is sanctioned by our international federation, (the FIE) and  we are currently working with OFC and the FIE to develop the sport of fencing in Oceania.

Irrespective of the level of contact or impact on our sport, this is a matter which cuts to the constitutional heart of our obligations as a National Sporting Organisation, member of the International Fencing Federation and recognized sport of the International Olympic Committee.

Please be assured, as an organisation Fencing New Zealand shall resist debates to take action which contravene our constitutional obligations (national and international) and shall remain true to our objectives of developing our sport of fencing for our members.

2006-09-25 08:36 - Gold For New Zealand Women’s Epee Team
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZThe New Zealand women’s epee team of Jessica Beer, Jennifer Hope and Kathlene Revie won the Belfast Commonwealth Fencing Championship team event, beating the Australian  title holders to win convincingly 45-38.

In the semi finals Jessica Beer held on to assure New Zealand of a Women’s Epee Team medal. She scored the winning point in extra time of a cliff hanger semi-final match against South Africa. After nine consecutive bouts the team score was tied 32-32. A final minute of extra time added and Jessica scored the last golden touch.

Kathlene Revie, Jennifer Hope and Jessica Beer first eliminated England to reach the semi finals and then took on the current Commonwealth Champion Team and top seed Austalia.

This medal is the first for New Zealand at the Commonwealth Fencing Championships, and 36 years since Commonwealth Games medals were won by New Zealand fencers.

“These women gave everything and won. This team Commonwealth Fencing Championship medal is fantastic and shows the strong effort  from for our fencers since the Athens Olympics where we had only one fencer competing” said Martin Brill, team manager and president of Fencing New Zealand.

2006-06-24 00:18 - Olympic Solidarity Coach Course - A Bouquet Of Thanks
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZI really have to thank [Martin Brill], and FeNZ, for having given me the opportunity to attend [the AFF Olympic Solidarity Coach] course -- I have benefitted from it in more ways than I can count. Beyond just the technical skills that were examined, Ioan Pop's insight into methodologies, and mindsets in the pedagogy of fencing were fascinating -- in particular the discussion on the new timings and the implications this has for teaching foil.

It's going to take me a while to thoroughly assimilate everything that is in the notes I have taken, but the methods Ioan demonstrated for structuring lessons for high level fencers (especially the interplay of the technical/tactical aspects of a lesson) have already clarified so many things for me.

It was also an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with other coaches from Australia and Malaysia in a friendly environment removed from the concerns and worries of a tournament setting.

The coaching team in Otago is going to undergo quite a workout over the next few weeks as I pass on what I have learned from the last five days!

Thanks once again, Dave


Dave, On behalf of our fencing community, thank you for having attended and thank you for your on going committment to fencing and service to fencers. I would also like to acknowledge and thank all your behind the scenes supporters from your own local fencing community who have contributed in their way and shared your journey to this point, well done.

I would also like to thank the other coaches who attended the Olympic Solidarity Coach Course, Sue Grant-Taylor, Barry More, and Daniel Chan and to also acknowledge and thank the fencing communities that support these coaches. Thank you, we are proud of you. Well done.

Finally I thank our International Fencing Federation (Federation Internationale d'Escrime), Olympic Solidarity, the Australian Fencing Federation and the New Zealand Olympic Committee for their support of this development opportunity for our sport and our coaches.

Thank you.  Martin Brill, President Fencing New Zealand

2006-05-19 19:00 - Diary - Laura Harvey - International Training Camp, Fontenbleau, France
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZWeek 3: 20th - 26th May

The last week was a bit more relaxed. Spent a bit of time doing team matches, mostly because everyone enjoys them so much, rather than for practice with them. Also we did some exercises that were less structured, like having someone stand on the end of the piste and an opponent attack them. Basically with both people able to do what they liked to try to score a point. We went to Racing Club again to practice there but this time there weren't very many people there, not sure why. Kuki had different people take turns at leading the footwork which was interesting to see. Good because now I have a whole selction of bizarre new leading and following exercises to take back and torture the school kids with. Yes aucklanders, if you're reading this I mean you! Its good to do more exercises that require you to concentrate really hard on the person leading them.

As our coach said, it was really the first time for all of us to be able to be somewhere where all we had to do was eat and sleep and train, and a really good experience to be able to put training before other things. Most of the time we're at home we're not able to concentrate only on fencing because things like finding some money and studying tend to get in the way. Unless we live in Russia. But none of us did.

There is an article about the training camps in the latest escrime magazine, I think. From what I have gathered they are planning to run a lot more of them (depending on finances), which sounds like an excellent idea to me.

Thanks to FeNZ for giving me the opportunity to attend and of course to the FIE for their generousity. It was an excellent experience and I hope I have been able to take as much from it as possible.

PS Daniel Levavasseur says hi to Martin and Kate.

2006-03-28 14:26 - Taking Rome by Storm - the story
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZJessica Beer and Jennifer Hope produced outstanding performances in the World Cup individual Women’s Epee event in Rome.

Fencing strongly from the first round Jessica Beer stormed through the 115 strong international field from the start. She beat the world 8th ranked fencer, Sonja Tol (Holland) for the top 16 round where she came within an excruciating 1 hit of the final of eight, surviving a broken blade and torn breeches, to lose 14 -15 to Julie Leprohon of Canada, and taking 13th place.

On the other half of the table, Jennifer Hope produced an excellent solid first round performance then qualification through to the last 64. On the second day of fencing, she was unable to advance further, finishing with a 33rd place.

In the world standings, Jessica Beer moves up to 83rd and Jennifer Hope 90th.

“This is the first time we have had two fencers at the same time in the top one hundred of the international ranking”, said Martin Brill, President of Fencing New Zealand. “The performance progress of both these fencers is excellent, a direct result of their quality training”.

2006-01-30 14:14 - Senior Commonwealth Championship Selection
Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZThe new competition calendar for 2006 is now available so it is probably timely to remind senior fencers of the selection criteria for Commonwealth Championships as published last year in the FeNZ Selection Policy.

As is usual for NZ senior team selection, North Island Championships will be a trial for this event and it is anticipated that fencers will be named by the end of May. Any interested fencer who is unable to attend the trial should present a very good reason (such as a severed limb, demonstrably your own, in a bucket of ice) to the Selector well in advance.

A formal request for fencers to nominate themselves for this event will be announced soon. In the meantime any questions can be directed to selector@fencing.org.nz

See below for detailed info about performance thresholds.

Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAfter a long illness,  Bob Binning passed away in Brisbane early on Monday morning.

I am saddened by the loss and extend to his family the condolences of myself and of the fencing community in New Zealand at large with whom Bob had a long association as a fencer. He will remain forever in our record books as a National Champion (Sabre 1955, '56, '57, '59, '61, '62, '63, '66 and also  Epee in 1966) , a Commonwealth Games bronze medallist (1962 Men's Sabre teams). He is a hero and legend in our sport of fencing.

Bob was generous in passing on his skills and experience.  We have been enriched through his participation and are gratefull for his contribution.

Bob was active in other areas and held in high regard in his communities. He was the  Drum major for his Wellington Pipe Band that returned from Scotland with glory as Champions in 1948. He was well known personality in Wellington and throughout New Zealand.

We salute Bob Binning.

Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZCongratulations to all the winners, well done. A full week-end of School Teams fencing was held. The local Wellington Teams dominated in numbers and were overall champions, but they had a run for their money. The Christchurch contingent with a very competitive team had an imense presence. On and off the piste behaviour was superbe. There were highs and lows, but the bouts were well fought, with no quarter being given nor asked for. There were close matches, games of two halves, and in the end, on the day, Fencing was the winner.

Thank you to Upper Hutt College for hosting the Championships. To all the volunteers who gave generously of their time to make the Championships possible, and to all the fencers who participated, there could not have been such a great week-end without your presence - Well done.

Martin Brill (President, Fencing New Zealand).

The current thinking regarding this event is that squad selections will be made by April 2006 and final team selections made by July 2006. It is also possible that squad members who are unsuccessful in making the final team may be invited to participate in a development tour to a second  international competition on at about the same time.

2005-05-09 15:13 - Level 1 Foil Coach Training
Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZCongratulations to the first four participants on the first Level 1 Foil Coach training course held over the week end in Wellington.  The 20 hour fencing theory and practical course is followed by a practical coaching experience requirement and a final assessment.

The FIE supported ' Oceania Fencing Master's Academy ' course leads to internationally recognised fencing coach qualifications, from Level 1 to Level 3.

The Australian based course can now be conducted in New Zealand as a consequence of Martin Brill's formal  recognition of competancy and training in the course and asessment last year, at the Olympic Solidarity Coaching Course in Melbourne.

Thanks to the investment support by Sport and Recreation New Zealand FeNZ is now able to offer this OFMA training course in conjunction with the the Australian Fencing Federation. The Level 1 course is the first stepon the learning path through to Level 3 and "Fencing Master" level.

There is also an opportunity for current coaches to obtain recognition of their prior learning (RPL) and have their previous qualifications, skill and ability to be recognised. Details of this are currently be finalised.

Anyone clubs or people wishing to obtain futher information please contact FeNZ secretary@fencing.org.nz

2005-04-06 16:00 - Advisory - Review of Ranking Points Competitions
Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZIn line with the newly adopted FeNZ Selection Policy (to be published shortly) the Selector is undertaking a review of the list of competitions eligible to accrue ranking points. It seems likely that  foreign domestic competitions with the exception of Australian ranking tournaments will be excluded, the list of eligible NZ domestic competitions will be limited and the points allocation for each tournament will be set to give more weight to the  big three events (Nationals, Nth Islands, Sth Islands).
Competitive fencers should consider the implications of this when planning their competition year.
I have started a forum topic on this issue and encourage you to make comments and express your ideas.

Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZ"Today I fenced in the Colorado Cup Open and I am pleased to say that I won a silver medal."

"Going into the DE's I was ranked 7th. On my journey to the final I faced some of Colorado’s best. In the top 8 I beat my opponent 15 - 14 into overtime with his priority he was so angry that he came very close to a black card. A victory against one of the Iowa brothers put me in the final with one of my training partners Nick Chainman who came 7th in the Cadets Epee in Plovdiv. Final score 15 - 11 to Chinman."

"Overall I fenced a thrilling 5 DE bouts. It was a memorable day for me."

2004-01-01 17:02 - New NZSDA Policy regarding medical declarations/notifications
Posted by adminmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAs part of the process of introducing the World Anti-Doping Code, NZSDA has made some important changes to its requirements concerning medical declarations and notifications.  These are effective from 1st January 2004.
A summary of these changes is provided below. Further detail can be found on the NZSDA website.
• Prior to 2004, corticosteroids (brown preventers) in inhalers and bronchodilators were permitted.  They are now permitted ONLY WITH ADVANCED MEDICAL NOTIFICATION.  They are therefore in the same class as Beta 2 Agonists (Blue relievers) and fencers using these medications must complete the “Abbreviated Therapeutic Use Exemption Application Process”.  This requires their doctor to compete a form available from the NZSDA website.  Note that this form is different from these used previously and a new form must be completed for 2004.

• All full Therapeutic Use Exemption Applications must be on the new Therapeutic Use Exemption Standard Application Form now provided on the NZSDA website
The necessary forms can be found on the Therapeutic Use Committee webpage (click on “Therapeutic Use Committee” on the left of the home page) at the NZSDA website.

FeNZ’s criteria for establishing whether a fencer needs to be included on the NZSDA’s Out-of-Competition Register are given on the webpage.

Important: If you are thinking about fencing overseas next year, please check this page to see whether you need to be included on the Out-of-Competition Register in order to be eligible to fence in the event.  Instructions for what to do if you do need to be registered are provided.
