Kron -- "crown" in medieval German -- is an affiliate of the HEMA Alliance, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to research and teaching of HEMA: Historical European Martial Arts. We teach a complete combat system including longsword, dagger, ringen (grappling), staff, spear, and other weapons.

The first practice session is free. Regular practice sessions are $5 each for guests. Members pay $52/year ($1 per week) to attend as many sessions as they like, and members vote on how this money is spent on the club.

We take safety seriously, but this is not role-playing or games. This is a martial art where practitioners are expected to defend themselves with sparring appropriate to their training level.
