xKDF Network is proud to host Longpoint, North America's premier competitive event for Historical European Martial Arts.
March 28th - 31st at the Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City, Maryland
Registration will open late summer / early fall.
We have always prided ourselves on being willing to attempt new things; risking our success to build on it. Longpoint introduced to North America high-quality cutting events, the concept of the Triathlon, and an event that promotes knowledge of our source material. In 2015, we introduced an armored tournament, the Passage At Arms. We continue to refine our tournament rules based on the feedback of participants every year.
Longpoint offers a respectable list of classes taught by both recognized and upcoming instructors. The goal of these classes is to attempt to send martial artists home with new approaches to training and concepts to better their groups. All are worthwhile and have been selected to compliment the year. Some instructors have multiple slots to accommodate scheduling conflicts for attendees.
A Beautiful Setting
Our venue offers something that is fairly unique to North American events in that we sleep and train in the same building. This may seem trivial, but the ability to train late into the night, hang out with friends right before passing out, and the lack of worry about transporting gear means that our attendees spend more time enjoying themselves than trying to find a ride.
