Classical Fencing Finals: Grand Assault of Arms and Public Exhibition
Step back into the 19th Century and witness the beauty, art, and science of Classical fencing! In its 20th year, the Association of Historical Fencing presents the finals of The Grand Assault, an annual classical fencing tournament where participants from all over the country test their mettle in formal bouts. This public event includes a small exhibition of 19th century weapons, demonstrations of 17th, 18th, and 19th century fencing, and the exciting spirited bouts of the finalists in foil, dueling sword, dueling saber, and 18th century small-sword. Join us in the historic St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn.
