Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) is the study of the martial practices of the Western European cultures of centuries past. The Saint Lawrence Swordfighters Guild studies a 600-year-old manuscript written by the medieval master-of-arms Fiore dei Liberi. Members learn authentic martial techniques of the Middle Ages with sword, spear, dagger, poleaxe, and even with just bare hands. The beginner program introduces you to the art, the weapons, and the history surrounding the golden age of armoured men-at-arms. All necessary equipment is provided for beginners with the exception of a pair of flat-soled shoes. Learn what it was like to really swordfight in the Middle Ages. You’ll be amazed at how different it is from the movies.
