Upper Hutt Fencing Club

In 2002 UHFC was founded by Mihai Ifrim, a former teacher of Upper Hutt College. As former students, friends and mentees of his, a group of us aim to continue the legacy and maintain what is a national championship winning club.  The club is now headed by Bryan "Baz" Clark and his team of Coaches.

The club has an outstanding record of producing some of the fittest and most enthusiastic fencers in the country with many fencers at the club holding both regional, national and oceanic titles.

The club prides itself on our sportsmanship, commitment and team spirit.

By getting involved in Fencing at UHFC students build a variety of skills, some of these include: balance, coordination, fitness, discipline, mental stamina, team work, leadership and interpersonal skills that will be with them for much of their life.

It is a sport that can develop you in many ways and can ultimately provide a hobby for life.
