The Piedmont Historical Fencing League


The Piedmont Historical Fencing League (PHFL) is devoted to promoting competitive historical European martial arts (HEMA) and inter-club training in the Southeastern United States (between Atlanta and Raleigh). Our goals are to

  • create competitive opportunities for newer, local fencers that are easier to attend than larger events

  • when possible, offer events that could be drive-in-drive-out competitions for most people in our league boundaries

  • raise the overall fencing capability in our area by giving fencers more opportunity to face one another and to compete against higher level practitioners

  • encourage interaction and training between HEMA groups in our area

  • help train judges and directors in the region.
