HAUKE 2021

The Hauke Swordplay Summit is excited to announce the 2021 dates for the future four day historical fencing and martial arts event. Mark your calendars for June 3 - 6, 2021!

Once again, the event will be located at The Abbey in Canon City, CO. You can expect to be immersed in a welcoming atmosphere focusing on HEMA studies and camaraderie. Scheduled activities will include the annual armored and unarmored tournament, Tournoi du Faucon Noir, engaging classes and lectures from a variety of specialists, free fencing in the fieldhouse, as well as prepared, historically themed challenges to take on during the weekend. Each evening will be an opportunity to participate in discussions alongside new and old friends while sharing food and drink. This includes signing up for Friday’s wine tasting at The Abbey.

Hauke Swordplay Summit 2020

It is with deepest regrets that we announce our decision to cancel the Hauke Swordplay Summit for 2020. Due to the current pandemic sweeping the country, we feel that this decision is in the best interest of the health and well being of our instructors and participants.

Look for Hauke Swordplay Summit in 2021!
