What we're about

Ever wanted to learn how to fight with medieval swords? This group is for you!
We practice live fighting with the longsword as a real martial art, using steel swords, real medieval techniques, and modern safety equipment.

It's huge fun, and a great way to stay fit while engaging with history. It's also much, much more entertaining than the gym.

Join us! All are welcome, from total beginners through to experienced martial artists.

To get a better sense of what we do, check out https://newhavenhistoricalfencing.wordpress.com/
or join the New Haven Historical Fencing Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/878089282375890/).

NOTE: in response to a FAQ, no, we don't dress up in medieval outfits (not that there's anything wrong with that!)
