Bringing together the weapons-based community (HEMA, Fencing, Filipino Weapon Arts, Japanese Weapon Arts, and more!) through competitive point-sparring!
Let’s come together through great camaraderie and an opportunity to test your skill against other weapons enthusiasts!
These bouts will be double elimination! So you’ll get to duke it out at least twice in any of these divisions below!
