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!
