Our training sessions consist of warmup exercises and stretching, drilling of techniques, instruction of new techniques, guided sparring, and free sparring.  Come prepared to work up a sweat!

For prospective members, we will be hosting an Intro to HEMA and Longsword class the first Saturday of every month (with exceptions for holidays).  After your introduction class, your first month of training is $50, which will include a guild t-shirt.  

Stick around with us and membership dues are just $40 after your first month, or $10 per class without membership.  These dues will go towards loaner equipment, liability insurance, bringing instructors from outside the Guild in, and other things that will benefit the Guild and further awareness of HEMA


What to bring

We provide loaner equipment for those that have not invested in gear yet, so all that is needed are clothes you are comfortable working out in and a source of hydration!  If you have fencing gear of some sort, feel free to bring it along and we can inspect it to see if it will hold up to the rigors of HEMA. 


where we meet

Our fechtschule (fencing school, ie, a school of fencers) is now located at Two Rivers Martial Arts in Indianola.
