Training

The club runs four different training streams:


Novice Training (HEMA-1)

This is the first course new members will do. It teaches them the basics of swordplay and how to spar safely and effectively.


Intermediate Training (HEMA-2)

This course builds on all the concepts learned in HEMA-1 and introduce students to a selection of the various weapon styles and treatises available. Most of the styles will focus on developing the use of the off hand in students. The course is mostly practical instruction with some reading material compiled for reference.


Study Groups

These are groups of members that aim to be as effective as possible at a specific weapon style. They are very much self-governed and direct their own study and training.


Battlefield Training

This course teaches members how to be safe and effective on the battlefield. It is aimed at members that want to participate in re-enactment events.
