What we're about

We are a Western martial arts organization dedicated to the practical study of Kunst des Fechtens (KdF), the traditional martial arts of medieval Germany. Our primary weapon is the longsword, though we delve into other weapons from time to time. Currently we are doing more dagger and dusack in addition to longsword.

Our members include martial artists who enjoy a combination of historical martial theory and practical sparring. We welcome both serious martial artists and curious students interested in learning about medieval combat.

Come check us out FOR FREE!

We are in the Boston, MA area.
