Jed's training philosophy is based on his belief that the primary goal of a coach is to continually foster an inquisitive love for the sport in his students. He began coaching Men's Foil National Team member Race Imboden at the age of 14 and coached him to a top 8 finish at the Senior World Championships, a bronze medal at the Paris CIP World Cup, an Olympic berth, and a Senior World Ranking as high as 4th in the World. He has produced Senior, Junior, and Cadet National Champions in addition to Senior, Junior, and Cadet World Team Members. His students have earned medals at Cadet, Junior, and Senior World Cups. Jed created his training regimen to include elements of yoga, feldenkrais, meditation, mobility flow, functional strength, and periodization techniques. He was introduced to yoga during his preparation for the Olympic games in 2004 and has been a practicing yogi for eleven years and is a certified yoga teacher.
