AHF Mission Statement

The Association for Historical Fencing is a non-profit organization formed by professional instructors, amateur fencers and fencing enthusiasts to meet the needs of the classical & historical fencing community. While these needs may change over time the AHF asserts its main duty is the preservation of classical and historical fencing through public education and presentations of factual, well documented information concerning our Western martial heritage.

To encourage the preservation of the fencing arts the AHF is dedicated to disseminating knowledge to its members and the general public through seminars, exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, workshops and maintaining an archival library for historical documents.

The Association for Historical Fencing was founded in May of 1999.
