BBF Ranks

In the BBF Fencing Club, there are four ranks which all fencers either start in or can earn:

 

Swashbuckler -

All fencers immediately start out at this rank, irregardless of experience. 

A Swashbuckler is typically a person who does not generally have a great deal of skill with the blade, but nevertheless fights with a great deal of enthusiasm…just not necessarily with style or grace.

 

 

 

 

Privateer -

This is the first rank which is obtainable in BBF.

To reach the rank of Privateer, a student must show physical comprehension of basic fencing blade work, footwork and techniques, as well as show a mental proficiency of the terms and ideas inherent in the sport of fencing.   The rank of Privateer ennobles the fencer to begin training in electric fencing and competing in local and regional tournaments.   All Privateers will receive a Letter of Marque for their achievement.

 

 

Buccaneer -

This is the second rank which is obtainable in BBF. 

To reach the rank of Buccaneer, a student must show an increased mental and physical comprehension of fencing tactics, strategies and techniques.  He must also how an increased proficiency of terms and ideas inherent in the sport of fencing.  Finally, he must have participated in at least one USFA sanctioned tournament in which he proved his comprehension and proficiency before Director and Peers.  All Buccaneers will receive a Pirate Badge and a copy of the Pirate’s Code as their reward.

 

 

Dread Pirate -

This is the highest rank which is obtainable in BBF. 

To reach the rank of Dread Pirate, a student must show a mastery of the mental and physical  techniques necessary in the sport of fencing.  He must show a mastery of the terms and ideas inherent in the sport of fencing.  Finally, he must not only have participated in numerous USFA sanctioned tournaments, but must have placed and earned rank in the USFA and have successfully defended his rank in a subsequent tournament before Director and Peers.  A Dread Pirate will receive their pirate’s Sword and Flag in order to strike fear into all opponents!
