We've outgrown our previous venues, and this year all events will be held at the Mercy College Athletic Center in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., right off the Hudson River. We're excited about this change, and we hope to see you there! Mercy College, less than an hour north of NYC in Westchester County, is easily accessible from I-87 and I-287, and is right off the Hudson Metro-North line. We have a reserved hotel block at the Hilton Garden Inn for $153/night, check below for details.

Our Friday Night Adventure is in the works right now, we'll keep you updated!

And when you register you'll see an option to "Donate a Day" or "Donate a Tournament." We want to make Fecht Yeah available for as many as we can, and if you're able to, your donation will serve as a scholarship for another fighter who would not be able to attend otherwise.

We're excited to be hosting this, and we'll see you in June!

Fecht Yeah 2019 Instructors

Katie Zold   Katie has practiced HEMA for four years and has studied multiple weapons including sword and buckler, poleaxe, dagger and, of course, longsword. At her home club of Laurel City Historical Fencing, she enjoys taking new students under her wing and sharing her passion for the art by helping as much as she can. In 2018 she placed third in Survivors (Tier B) Longsword for Fecht Yeah and third in cutting in 2017, though she will joke her crowning achievement in HEMA is showing up on the Crushes and Confessions page multiple times. HEMA turned Katie's life around and gave her a feeling of strength that she loves to share and introduce others to as often as possible.  Photo: Deena Sadek   Class: Once More....With Fuhlen!
