About Us


Chichester Fencing Club was started in 1950 by the foilist and sabreur Mac Jaeger. An exuberant and charismatic international children's author, Mac developed a strong portfolio of fencing in Scotland under the legendary master Rogier Crosnier and fought internationally in France at Montpelier University with some of the greats of his day. Not content with just proving himself with the sword he added bull fighting in Nîmes and motor racing in Le Mans to his increasing adventures. A natural sabreur and marrying into the heady world of the theatre he was inspired by the derring-do of the early screen heros and was highly motivated latterly by his encounter with Bob Anderson in master classes when Bob was national coach. Bob has of course been the fight arranger for many block busters including the Zorro films.

Mac was delighted to see the Club's great leaps forward through the years. More recently, fencers from the club have gone on to win both open and national championships and now regularly represent Team GB on the international stage.
