Miwa Nishi

Instructor of Fencing: All Levels

Miwa Nishi (nee McRee) grew up in Hawaii, started fencing in high school, and continued while at Reed College. She received an English degree from Reed in 1992, became a LMT in 1995 and a fencing instructor in 1995. Miwa has been teaching at Reed since 2003. Miwa’s teaching style focuses on fencing being a fun way to reduce stress, increase physical/mental relaxation, and most importantly encourage mental adaptability. While she is currently a recreational fencer, Miwa has competed at both the local and national level in all three weapons. Foil is her favorite weapon, although she is delighted to fence any weapon.
