PHFL Longsword Tournament - A yearly ranking based on performance across four official events in the league boundaries. We encourage a diversity of rules between our events to help find fighters with a diverse martial tool set, not just those who train for competition.

PHFL Ladder Tournament - A continuous tournament where fighters are ranked, and challenge each other to one-on-one fights to move up the ladder. Fights use our continuous action rules that promote minimal stopping to adjudicate exchanges.
