2017 Tournament Dates

FFA’s Home Tournament Series

We highly recommend competing in our monthy tournaments. Fencing tournaments are a lot of fun and a very important part of your development as a fencer. It’s only through bouting that students will learn to apply the skills that they are learning in practice and it will motivate them to work harder and ask questions during their lessons. You will learn a ton and make new friends wether you come in last place or first place.

We will be hosting 3 tournaments per month (1 Foil, 1 Saber & 1 Epee tournament per month). So get ready for some FUN FENCING ACTION!
