Welcome! We are a community of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) practitioners from Central and Western Massachusetts. We specialize in longsword, rapier, bâton, sabre, and more!
We learn from both historical sources and living traditions and we'd love to have you study with us! Take a class and find out what the art is all about!
CLASS UPDATE WINTER 2020–2021
We're pleased to announce the launch of our Women's/LGBTQ group, which will be meeting Sundays from 10–11 AM for self-directed practice, with regular open class afterwards.
PVFA historical fencing classes are continuing 6PM–8PM with full COVID protocols in place. Worcester Fencing Club classes, also with full COVID protocols, are Tuesday from 7:15–8:45. Saturday Worcester class is now on SUNDAY. Women's/LGBTQ Group meets at 10 AM, followed by regular class at 11 AM. Please arrive dressed and ready to go, as changing rooms are not available!
