We are dedicated to reconstructing the martial arts of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Using historical fighting manuals and authentic training weapons, we are rediscovering these lost arts.

Are you Interested in medieval history? Ever wanted to learn how to swordfight? Looking for a fun way to get some exercise? Here’s your chance to learn the martial arts of Europe.

REKINDLE A TRADITION

HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts. This broad umbrella spans a period between ca. 1300-1800, and is rooted in the written and illustrated teachings of various masters from many european nations. The traditions within that umbrella are a rich tapestry of weapon-sets and contexts. You can be a part of bringing these arts back to life.

We believe strongly in equality and inclusivity, and we welcome anyone from any background or nationality to join the club. Height, weight, gender, ethnicity, or age are not barriers to participation in this art.

SWORDSMANSHIP

We primarily study and practice the Liechtenauer, or German tradition of the longsword. Other weapons of study include Sword and Buckler, Dussack, Messer, Rapier, Grappling, Polearms, and more.

SCHOLARSHIP

Learning to read, study, and interpret the historic manuals and treatises is critical to the success of every student. Our interpretations are at the forefront of the HEMA community and our instructors teach workshops at events throughout the Western US.

EXCELLENCE

Our instructors and students include multiple medalists with years of experience and a proven pedagogical approach.
