HFA hosts several tournaments throughout the year. These consist of internal “ beginners” tournaments, regional youth tournaments, “open” tournaments for ages thirteen through adult, and veterans tournaments for ages forty and up. Our tournaments are widely attended by fencers throughout the Midwest.
HFA also hosts events such as the “ Battle of the Ages” where HFA fencers invite someone to come learn fencing. Fencers give their invitee some instructions in the sport, and the invitee then suits up and fences his/her host. Of course, there is a small reward for the winner and a little humble pie for the loser to make it a fun event!
HFA hosts and strongly encourages participation at tournaments across the U.S. to encourage competition and interest in the sport of fencing. As part of its mission, HFA actively promotes fencing through instruction and competition.
