We are carefully running practices. See our COVID-19 Safety Policies.
Mixed Weapon Martial Arts (MWMA). MMA with weapon simulators. Weapon-based sport combat.
We blend a variety of systems to train better fighters without the bull. We aren’t limited to Western/Eastern/whatever (rebrand in progress). Use what works, toss what doesn’t.
We don’t teach self-defense. This is a combat sport, not modern combatives. As such, we make no claims that anything you learn during practice will help you defend yourself “on da streetz”.
Clothes you can stretch in and water to drink. We provide equipment for the Beginner practices.
Beginners are usually allowed to do controlled sparring with their coach from Day 1 if they wish.
We use blunted, flexible steel for Foundations practices and rattan/bamboo for Beginners.
This is a combat sport with weapons.
All sword-, staff-, dagger-, etc.-fighting can fall under the umbrella term of “fencing”.
We do not teach Modern Olympic Fencing (foil, saber, epee).
Yes. Our Head Coach teaches HEMA as a study through private training.
