Swordscholar teaches Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) based on the modern research of medieval training manuals from the 14th to 16th centuries.
Swordscholar is a regional youth program of the HEMA Alliance, an educational non-profit organization with affiliates and academic partners throughout the world.
We teach private and public martial arts classes, present at schools and community events, and co-host the SoCal Swordfight, one of the largest annual gatherings of historical European martial artists in North America.
Kids have fun fighting with swords; that goes without saying. However, running a serious, safe, and disciplined martial arts program based on European martial arts takes a team of qualified and dedicated professionals. We encourage parents to read our Instructor Bios, read more About the Program, and then ask us question at firstname.lastname@example.org.
