Medieval Sword School is part of our ongoing classes in Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), the rediscovered arts of combat from the Medieval period through to the beginning of the twentieth century. You can learn more from our website beginning with What is HEMA.
We are looking to expand our weekly scheduled class on Thursday evenings to Saturday daytimes providing we can cover the venue costs.
