Do you do HEMA?

Postby admin » 18 Feb 2013 16:55

If so, where do you do it?

I am Matt, and I train at Schola Gladiatoria in Ealing, West London. I also appear at the English Martial Arts Academy in Guildford, Surrey, sometimes.

I am Junaid, and I train at Schola Gladiatoria in Ealing, West London.
I also get together with others who can make it for occasional informal sparring sessions during the weekend, usually somewhere in the Eastcote/Ruislip/Pinner area in Harrow, north-west London (and am on the lookout for a good local venue, any recommendations etc please pm..)

I'm Mike, and I run the Southern Maryland Warband out of St. Mary's County.

Far as I can tell, we're the only HEMA group between here and Baltimore.

As yet, we're not associated with any other groups.

At the moment, our focus is on daggers and knives in both the Italian and German sources.

When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.

I'm Dave, I help run the Cheshire Chapter of the Black Boar school of swordsmanship. We do early Courstsword/Smallsword in Cheshire, and will probably start another weapon in the coming months.

I also do some stuff on the borders between HEMA and reenactment, third person demonstrations and talks to the public, based on sources, but in costume.

I'm Phil. I teach for the Black Boar School of Swordsmanship in Edinburgh and Fife, as well as national gatherings. Mainly sabre, smallsword and cane with a bit of knife, but if it's French and C18/9th I've an interest in it (this week it's firearms and polearms).

I also have an occasional "half-life" where I do costumed lectures and demonstrations on historical weaponry and techniques which is neither true re-enactment nor true HEMA.

Hi, I'm Martin and I'm an addict. Oh, wrong meeting. :)

I train at Schola Gladiatoria in Ealing weekly, occasional trips down to English Martial Arts Academy, and other outside practices in the Hillingdon/Uxbridge/Ealing area as well as Guildford.

Main focuses are 19thC Sabre and Manciolino's Sword and Buckler, with a sideline in Submission Wrestling (which I need to spend more time doing).

I certainly do, though I nowadays have less time for it than I would wish.

I run the training group for Swedish military sabre in Gothenburg Historical Fencing School (GHFS) twice a week. I would love to have the time to train and teach longsword again like I used to, but that will have to wait until the kids have grown older.

Hi, I'm Bob and I've studied HEMA since 1994. Since 2003 I've run the Hotspur School of Defence, which now has four chapters across Northern England and the Scottish Borders - Alnwick, Newcastle, Consett and Jedburgh - training every week. We study a corpus of arms dating from the C15th including longsword, messer, dagger, pollaxe, spear, glaive and wrestling, from various contemporary German and Italian sources. I also occasionally teach Highland broadsword/backsword.

Hi, I'm Maurice and I do HEMA, which in my case has proven highly addictive.

I train at MARS - Fight school for medieval martial arts North-Netherlands, in Groningen (as you might've guessed, in the north of the Netherlands), where focus lies on German Longsword, Ringen and some daggerplay.

Aside from training there, I try and fulfill my duties as chairman to the best of my abilities and I'm known to fill in for our head instructor every now and again, teaching classes (or parts thereof) in our beginners group.

I'd say my forte lies in unarmed and knife/dagger combat, due to my experience in other martial arts, but I must say Longsword comes to me somewhat naturally, and thusly hope to reach my full potential therein one day as well.

I'm Joeli and I train HEMA in Helsinki, Finland. I'm trying to figure out Lecküchner's messer in a group called Grieswartt, located smack in the city centre. We have three classes per week, concentrating on ringen, dagger and messer. Onece per month I run a club that presents and collates trascription and translation work from a single source. Once a week I travel to the outskirts to wrestle in Espoo Association for Historical Fencing. I also train Liechtenauer longsword in a public gym few times a week (even in the mornings if that's the only possible time slot) with a group of friends from three different schools in Helsinki area.

Makes two of us :lol:
And thanks, I'll let our designer/photographer/webdesigner/head or PR know xD

It's actually a modern take on (and perhaps slightly more aggressive version of) the 15th century coat of arms of the city of Groningen; http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: ... apen_2.svg

Hi, I'm Steve Thurston,

I run Dragon's Tayle; studying English Longsword in Darlington, train Silver's backsword with a local club, and try to get to York to study Meyer with the Frei Fechter when I can. I studied a bit of rapier for a while with the SSS under Mark Donnelly.
