SoCal Swordfight! is a community project of over 10 Historical European Martial Arts clubs sharing seminars and tournaments with the assistance of the HEMA Alliance, an educational non-profit promoting HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). Everything we teach is either derived from an existing historical training manuscript (e.g. Leckuchner 1482 for langenmesser -- German "longknife" -- or Meyer 1570 for longsword), or is a living tradition such as Irish stick-fighting or Scottish wrestling. Among the participating clubs are programs for children and adults, beginners and advanced martial artists.
