The Forge: Western Martial Arts
We're a group of martial artists that practice the fighting styles that were practiced in Europe during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. We focus primarily on German Longsword, medieval grappling, dagger and messer. We are a chapter of the Academy of European Swordsmanship, which was founded in 1995, and has been offering instruction in Western Martial Arts in Calgary since 2007.
