New Season Recruitment!

It’s that time of the year again!

On Monday 9/09/2019 @ Mahon Community Centre 8PM we’ll start our German Longsword Course – 10 weeks long medieval longsword course that will allow you to experience what Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) is really about!

This course will teach you foundations of the XIV/XV Century ‘Art of Combat’ (Kunst des Fechtens) based on medieval treatises from the authors of Society of Liechtenauer that created a system known later as German School of Fencing which was taught in the Holy Roman Empire during the Late Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern periods. . This system sets up a framework on which all medieval combat techniques are based so while this course covers longsword only it’ll also set up solid foundations for other weapons as well.

This is considered to be a minimum required standard for free fencing (sparring) and as such is obligatory for all who want to move onto the Scholar rank and start participating in club activities!
