Curious as to what HEMA is? Always wanted to learn how to sword-fight? Come to the Ars Gladii Intro Class! Over the four-week course, participants will get to handle swords, learn the basics of sword-play, and experience free-sparring and test cutting.

Included in the price of the class is a HEMA-rated fencing mask which is the student’s to keep at the end – their very first piece of HEMA gear! All other equipment is provided.

Students will want to wear athletic clothing including flat shoes (running/cross training shoes are just fine). We do keep it cool in the winter and warm in the summer – we suggest students bring a hoodie (colder weather) or wear light, cooling/wicking materials (warmer weather). Thin, light gloves such as batting gloves, golf gloves, or “Mechanix” style work gloves are highly recommended. Lastly, students should bring their own filled water bottle, though some water is available on-site .

Classes run 10/21, 10/28, 11/4, 11/11 .

Note: We make use of a service called PushPress to manage our members, documentation, etc. After completing your class registration, a link will be provided for you to create your PushPress account and sign our waiver. This must be accomplished before the start of the first Intro class.
