Coaches and Staff

Matt began fencing in 1985 learning foil under Coach Van Wolosin at Newfield HS in NY. His high school was well known for fencing having sent a foilist from Newfield to the ’76 Olympics (under coach Wolosin). In his senior year Matt fenced Varsity for the undefeated League and County championships (Suffolk County had 11 high schools with Varsity fencing programs).

Going on to Virginia Tech Matt was soon Captain of the Sabre team leading them to victories in the 90, 91 and 92 seasons of the Mid Atlantic Fencing College Associations. While there he won the Virginia cup for Sabre. Virginia Tech’s Sabre team took first place in State Divisional championships three years running and in 1993 Matt was on the divisional championship team for Sabre, Epee and Foil that year. Matt was a competitive fencer (mostly Sabre) from 85-95 fencing in Division 1 nationals and various division 1 circuit events. In the early 90s when the US had their first Sabre team championships three of the four members of the winning team were Sabre students of Matt’s. In 1993 Matt was selected to get his Foil Certification at the coaches college in Colorado Springs by Maestro Marx and Maestro Beguinet.

A founding member of the Richmond Fencing Club Coach Stone taught foil classes at RFC from 2000 to 2003. He looks forward to coming back to this club that means so much to him.
