Boston Armizare (formerly SSG Boston) is a Historical European Martial Arts group studying Fiore dei Liberi's L'Arte di Armizare (The Art of Bearing Arms, c. 1410), the earliest surviving comprehensive system of longsword, dagger, grappling, and more.

Our students work on a combination of longsword, abrazzare (grappling), daga (dagger/knife) and other weapon skills. These skills are drawn from direct translation from historical sources, developed through multiple physical interpretations, and tested at speed. Though we emphasize historical technique, our training sessions are a blend of warmup, interpretation, drill, and for men and women who've passed our safety standards, both focused and open sparring.

New students should take our introductory class first ($50 for 4 weekly sessions), or contact our instructors for more information.  We're happy to have visiting scholars from other programs come and play! Come wearing comfortable workout clothes & flat shoes. Men need groin protection but other equipment can usually be lent for a time.

Boston Armizare is a proud member of the HEMA Alliance.
