CKDF SPARRING NIGHT

Join Us for Saturday Night Sparring

CKDF hosts a monthly get together for Capital-area HEMA fighters to meet, fight, and learn in a tournament-like setting... and then maybe head out to a bar afterwards.

Each month, we test a different format, different rules, and even different weapons.  

Results are not reported to HEMA rankings.  Winner of each tournament will only receive bragging rights.

Please register only one person at a time. 

All participants must sign the HEMA Alliance Waiver.
