HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts. It's the study and revival of sword fighting, polearms, wrestling, and other martial arts of Europe from the 1200s-1800s.
HEMA teaches courage and character.
My current focus is longsword in the tradition of the German fencing master Liechtenauer. I've been studying HEMA at Sword Carolina in Piedmont since June 2019.
I also mentored the HEMA Club at NEXT High School and incorporate HEMA into my Beowulf Camp and upcoming Medieval Camp.
This class will be held Wednesday, May 4, 2:30-3:30 pm.
Location: The Spinning Jenny in Greer
