Medieval Longsword is Mid-South’s newest program exploring the art of swordplay for those ages 16 or older. HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) is a rapidly growing martial arts movement which rediscovers various forms of historical fighting arts through research, active experimentation, and competition.
Mid-South’s newest coach, Eric Guay, leads a Saturday Longsword class at Mid-South from 1:00-2:30pm. The class is focusing on the German style of Longsword utilizing synthetic bladed swords from Purpleheart Armoury. Safety and fun are emphasized as fencers explore this fun and challenging style of sword fighting.
