What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

We are the ONLY full-time school in the Midwest offering Historical European Martial Arts. Our Knightly Arts program emphasizes Armizare, the fighting tradition practiced by Italian knights in the 14th and 15th centuries, and includes everything from the two-handed sword to wrestling, dagger-fighting and fully-armoured combat. .The Renaissance Swordplay program begins with the elegant rapier, and expands to teach using the rapier with daggers and cloaks, the sword and buckler, even two swords use together. All of this and a good workout, too! You will get a chance to combine martial arts with a glimpse into another era, taught in a modern, professional and friendly environment in a school with nearly two-decades of experience and an international reputation.
