Beginning HEMA Class

  • Join us as we examine the historical martial arts from which modern sport fencing descends. The Historical Martial Arts Foundations class is an introductory level overview of combat fundamentals including:
    • Footwork and Distance
    • Unarmed Techniques
    • Practical considerations of fighting with sharp and heavy weapons.
  • We will work on material common to multiple historical fighting styles,
  • preparing you for effective study of the weapon of your choosing, whether longsword, single-handed sword, rapier, or dueling saber.
  • Advanced Classes will be weapon specific and will require TFC Membership
  • which will allow you to participating in open bouting sessions six days a week, and many other perks.
  • When students are ready to continue their journey beyond Beginning Fencing, they should purchase their own fencing equipment.
