Fencing was first introduced in the SEA (South East Asia) Games in the 1987 Jarkarta Games. The five countries which took part in the fencing event decided to form an association to represent them in the region like other main sports. Thus, SEAFF was formed on the 12th September 1987 in Jarkarta, Indonesia. The Federation represents an organisation of the national fencing associations of countries in the South East Asia region, which are duly recognised by their respective National Olympic Committee and accredited by the Federation International D'Escrime. It is formed primarily to propagate, encourage, promote and develop the sport and art of amateur fencing within the region. The presidency of SEAFF would be rotated among the member nations by English alphabetical order and the member country holding the presidency is obligated to organize a SEAFF Championship in the year that has no SEA (South East Asia) Games. The country currently holding the SEAFF presidency is Phillipines.
