The Haitian Machete Fencing Project

Haitian machete fencing is a functional martial art with deep roots in Haitian history. Founded in 2004, our project has been dedicated to promoting and teaching this system worldwide, under the tutelage of master fencer Alfred Avril. On December 1st, Professor Avril succumbed to a fever and died, leaving behind a widow and dependent grandson. To assist them in meeting their basic needs in the coming years, we have created the Alfred Avril Memorial Fund, which will be soliciting donations through Indiegogo until August 6th 2015. Our annual training program will be suspended this coming summer as we sort out the future of our project with Professor Avril's sons and other local students, but we remain available to conduct workshops on traditional Haitian fencing worldwide.
