My son lives and works in London and I was wondering if you knew where Alex O’Connell trains.

while I visited london many years ago, I am not familiar w the fencing scene there. but a google search reveals that alex once fenced at the Thames Fencing Club. I assume he still does, so you can check there. good luck.

When Alex returns to the UK perhaps my son can find him and have a bout or two.
