Gate D - Springfield Road, B13 9UU Birmingham, United Kingdom
Come and experience what all the fuss is about! Learn historical European martial arts, focused on the foundational basics of the German longsword traditions of the 15th and 16th centuries.
We are starting another 8-week beginner's course on Tuesday nights at Moseley School Health & Fitness Centre, B13 4LR (entrances off College Road and Springfield Road), just off the Stratford Road in Moseley. Cost of the whole course is £50 and there are limited places available.
All necessary equipment for the course is provided, however if you have your own HEMA gear (longsword, fencing mask, gloves, etc.), please feel free to bring it.
There is plenty of on-site parking, male and female changing room and showers. Please wear clothing that is suitable for sports / strenuous physical activity. We train HEMA as a modern martial art, so please no period or fantasy costumes! Footwear should be trainers that are appropriate for a dance studio floor: no boots; no heeled shoes! And, don't forget to bring a water bottle.
School of Historical Combat is for everyone! For insurance purposes, our current minimum age is 18, but there is no maximum age. Feel free to invite anyone you know who might be interested in learning how people REALLY fought with swords.
If you want to know more — or reserve your place on the course — why don't you send us a message!
