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,   sports- massage   therapists   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.
