Birmingham HEMA Club was founded to explore and rediscover the martial arts techniques and treaties of the weapons-masters of medieval and renaissance Europe. We are a very practical club, bringing combat styles to life with an emphasis on martial application and combat sparring. We specialise in the works of Italian fight master Fiore dei Liberi, though often employ methods and techniques learned from the German-derived systems to develop a more rounded combat technique. We’re a very friendly group, and always willing to bring on new members. Our club currently hosts members from all walks of life; modern sport fencers, stage combat performers, actors, students, office-staff, authors and even a pharmacist. A background in martial arts isn’t necessary, all you need is a reasonable level of fitness and mobility and be willing to learn and enjoy yourself. HEMA is an efficient and technical martial art, and deals with armed and unarmed combat techniques that should be handled carefully. We take our safety commitments very seriously and our students are always instructed with that in mind. By attending regularly your proficiency will grow quickly, and blade-technique will improve dramatically. However we understand that people can’t always attend every week, so don’t let a busy schedule get in the way of learning a brilliant and beautiful skill. For more information or if you would like to come and train with us, then please contact us on: Tel: 07813 308672 or Email: Info@birminghamhemaclub.co.uk

Since its early popularisation in the Victorian and Edwardian eras there have been female HEMA practitioners, and Birmingham HEMA Club are proud to be part of that tradition. We are keen to see more ladies entering this brilliant and continually evolving sport, and take their place in the ranks of expert swordswomen who help make HEMA what it is.
