The goal for all our events is to present experiences that support personal growth of fighters as well as the growth of our local, regional, and national HEMA community.

I’m happy to say that As You Wish – our Rapier & Dagger tournament (and Princess Bride screening) – was a great success with 30 participants across 13 schools!

This is a format we will certainly duplicate for future events!!

Congratulations to our winners!
