The Leon Paul Junior Series (LPJS) is the best way to start fencing competitively. It is designed specifically for young fencers who want to compete in a fun, safe environment. There are over 30 competitions nationwide and athletes' ages range from 7 to 17. Fencing is a great way to keep fit but to develop your skills you need to fence under competition conditions against different opposition. Some fencers attend just one or two competitions each year, while others will compete in several. Fencers collect ranking points from each event to climb up the LPJS rankings tables and win prizes. Virtually all of the successful young fencers in the country started their careers at LPJS competitions.
Director of Leon Paul London
All LPJS events are run to the same format and follow the BFA & FIE rules with the a few amendments specifically related to age groups.
|Age||Birth Year||Blade Size||Poule fights||Direct Elimination|
Leon Paul are making the following changes to the LPJS for 2019.
All medals will be engraved with the Competition Name, Weapon & Age Group.
LPJS conductive pistes
Leon Paul have purchased 8 new half-width pistes for organisers to use with at their events. See the 'LPJF FOR ORGANISERS' section for more details.
BF Registered Events
All LPJS Events must now be registered with British Fencing. More details can be found here.
Fencers can only fence for 1 Club
Fencers can't fence for multiple clubs at events. Multiple clubs causes problems for competition organises because the computer software sees any club names that are not identical as different clubs e.g. 1) ZFW 2) Sussex House 3) ZFW/Sussex House are seen as 3 different clubs and 'separation by clubs' for the poules will not work.
If a fencer enters under multiple clubs only the first club will be taken.
Following each event fencers will be sent a link (via the email address they enter with) to an online survey. This will allow Leon Paul to help organisers continually improve their events.
