Meet The Team
Head Coach & Founder
Head Coach and founder of OSM Fencing Club, Orion Stone-McNeil has been active in the sport since 1995 as an athlete and coach. With an extensive background in all three weapons, competing from the local to national level, Orion brings invaluable experience to the Island's fencing community!
Orion retired from competitive fencing in 2007 when he began to take a more active approach to promoting the sport throughout the Island community in the form of programs and clubs before moving to Beijing in 2012 where he created the Sino Bright School Fencing Club. After his return to Victoria, he founded OSM Fencing in 2017 as a competitive training program before transitioning it into a physical club.
Orion has trained athletes of all levels, from recreational to national team. He believes in the competitive growth of the sport, driving for excellence, and instilling confidence and passion in all the athletes he works with.
Isaac Carter-Hughes has been an active fencing athlete since 2013, competing primarily in foil at the local to national tournament level. He has volunteered in the Victoria fencing scene for nearly as long, and has been looking to support the competitive field on the Island throughout that time. Using his background as a Personal Trainer, Isaac's aim is to keep athletes healthy and in good form throughout their career no matter their level
