Have you ever wanted to fight like a medieval Knight? Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) is the study and recreation of medieval fighting systems from surviving books and manuscripts. This class will teach you the fundamentals of fencing with a longsword. We will cover everything from foot work, to advanced techniques and strategies. The class will have two halves; the first half being dedicated to drilling and learning new techniques, the second half will be open floor space for free play, or to practice your skills.

Recommended: Feder (practice longsword) and hand protection.
