Welcome!

The Association for Historical Fencing and Palm Beach Classical Fencing are pleased to invite you to a classical fencing tournament.

Whether you're a seasoned fencer, a complete beginner, or somewhere in between, this is a great opportunity for you to meet other fencers, test out your skills, and get a taste of the spirit of classical fencing.

A classical fencing tournament differs in several ways from a modern (electric) fencing competition, so if you're new to classical fencing please read our rules carefully. One main difference is that fencers are also awarded technical points to distinguish between those who are adhering to sound martial principles and those who are merely interested in scoring points.

Spectators are welcome free of charge.
