The Haitian Machete Fencing Project

Haitian machete fencing is a functional martial art with deep roots in Haitian history. Founded in 2004, our project is dedicated to promoting and teaching this system worldwide. For ten years, under the tutelage of master fencer Alfred Avril, we led annual training sessions at the Avril family homestead near Jacmel, Haiti. Though Professor Avril passed away in December 2014, his sons and other committed students have received his blessing to continue the practice, and to invite serious-minded foreigners to come to Haiti and train with us in the esoteric martial art of Haitian machete fencing. Our training programs for Summer 2016 are now accepting applications. We are also available to teach workshops on traditional Haitian fencing worldwide.
