Home – HEMA School in Detroit MI

Ars Gladii is a historical fencing and martial arts school located in Garden City, MI. We are one of North America’s oldest schools for HEMA – Historical European Martial Arts. That means we take surviving historical records and manuscripts on how to fight with swords and diligently recreate the techniques shown. In other words – WE PLAY WITH SWORDS!
