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.
