The Britsh Fencing Association’s Achievement Award Scheme has grading in all three weapons: foil, epée and sabre.

Nine awards for each weapon provide incentive for the progressive learning of fencing skills and theory. The skills required for each award are illustrated on colour-coded wall posters and fencers of all ages can monitor their progress by receiving tracksuit badges and certificates.

Fencers who wish to progress beyond Grade 3 at any weapon must be individual members of the BFA.

Who can issue awards?

  • Club Leaders may award Grade 1 Foil
  • Club Coaches may award up to Grade 3 at the weapons for which they are qualified
  • County Coaches may award up to Grade 6 at their weapons
  • Regional and Senior coaches may award Grades 1-9 at their weapons
  • Awards may be adapted for disabled fencers

BFA Achievement Awards are recognised by other organisations and can be included in Duke of Edinburgh Awards, requirements for the Stunt Register, Scouts and Guides Associations awards etc.

Visit the BFA, and search for “achievement awards”.
