The Academy of European Swordsmanship studies a broad spectrum of Western Martial Arts. We concentrate on German styles from a variety of masters, but also study English, French, and Italian treatises. Our primary focus is swords, but we also work with stave & polearms, unarmed (Ringen, hand-to-hand combat), knife/dagger combat, rapier, and more. While the majority of our study is based on Mediaeval and Renaissance work, we encourage incorporating later Western based techniques in order to complete our total martial system.
