Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

I represent a Collegiate fencing club. I was wondering is the DFA going to host any type of tournaments for this new style of fencing or will it be incorporated into USFA?

A:

The DFA welcomes the USFA to adopt this new and exciting sport. Until then, the DFA will work diligently with all learning institutions to setup events for Dagger Fencing worldwide.

Q:

Do you have to wear a back zipper jacket while dagger fencing on a standard epee strip?

A:

While the DFA cannot recommend using any other type of protective fencing jacket other than a back zipper jacket for 2 weapon fencing the standard rule while fencing on a strip is to wear a fencing jacket designed specifically for the epee hand.

Q:

Where can I purchase wireless scoring equipment?

A:

www.hitmate.uk

Q:

What do you mean by an ALIAS?

A:

An ALIAS would be a specific name given to a fencer by a sponsor to advertise their brand: For instance, if RED BULL wanted to sponsor a fencer the name "RED BULL" would be placed on the back of the fencing jacket. The fencer would then wear a costume designed in Red Bull colors and possibly have a Red Bull logo on the uniform for advertising.
