FECHTSCHULE AMERICA 2013!!!
The Western Martial Arts Coalition and The Historical European Martial Arts Alliance proudly invite you to the 4th annual FECHTSCHULE AMERICA!!! Please join us March 15th -17th, 2013 in Houston, Texas for North America’s premier educational and competitive WMA / HEMA event.
As has become the Fechtschule America custom, instructors from all over the world will be descending upon Houston to provide workshops, lectures, and presentations on a wide variety of WMA / HEMA related topics. In attendance will be some of your favorite world class instructors as well as some new-to-Fechtschule-America faces.
THE HAMMERTERTZ FORUM OPEN INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENTS!!!
Fechtschule America is home to North America’s largest and most prestigious WMA / HEMA specific international open longsword tournament. This year the competition is expected to be even greater than ever so be sure to register early and reserve your place!
In recent years Fechtschule America has spearheaded the revival of several historical tournament formats and we plan to continue that fine tradition. In 2013 we will once again hold both the Invitational Franco-Belgian Rules Longsword Tournament as well as our much-lauded Open International Longsword Tournament. However, it doesn't end there! We'll also be hosting a sword and buckler tournament, a women's longsword tournament and we're working hard to also host dagger, cutting, and armoured poleaxe tournaments. Stay tuned for more details in the near future.
Discounted hotel rates (w/free hot breakfast buffet!) and free airport and event-facility transportation (to the first 75 registrants) to and from the airports will, once again, be offered by your local hosts, Schwert am Schwert. In this tough economy no other event goes the extra mile to make your WMA / HEMA experience the absolute best. This is why we are bringing back our unprecedented early registration fee of $175.00 USD for those registering before February 1st, 2013! Be sure to register early and take advantage of this great offer.
Registration is now open and we’ll be posting an updated schedule and instructor list in the next few days. Be sure to check the website often to see this year’s fantastic lineup.
We’ll see you in Houston!
