And welcome to the community of HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) located in the Denver and Colorado Springs areas. The Guild Academy brings the medieval world to life by practicing the sword fighting arts offered in 14th - 16th century Europe.
The Guild Academy supports HEMAA and studies the sword fighting arts documented in Fiore dei Liberi's Flos Duellatorum (Italian Tradition) & Johannes Liechtenauers work (German Tradition). Other works include the Dardi school of sword and shield as well as the study of pole arms and spears. Abrazare/Ringen (grappling) paired with the Rondel (dagger) also play an integral role.
Attention is focused on your personal development, respect, and healthy living. Forging these elements together will help you succeed in your sword fighting training as well as in all aspects of your life, and overall fitness.
