The Guild Academy

The Guild Academy keeps alive the ancient practice of HEMA—or Historical European Martial Arts— that helps students develop self-confidence and physical strength as well as dazzling swordsmanship skills. Head instructor Aindreas draws from centuries-old sources and manuals that span a wealth of different combat styles, such as the Fiore's Flos Duellatorum and Talhoffer's Fechtbuch. Equipped with a practice gear under the watchful eye of a seasoned trainer, students build dexterity and muscle tone as they master timeless weapons such as the shortsword and buckler, the dirk, and the spada longa.

Very professional and educated learning environment. We felt welcome and had so much fun learning the very basics of sword handling, safety, and fighting. I would highly recommend this to any with any interest in this historical fighting method.

Thank you so much for kind words! I had a great time teaching him, he caught on rather fast. A natural to be sure, I hope we'll see him for continuous lessons also.

Learning to swordfight is wicked fun and the preceptors at the guild are all friendly and approachable. They do their best to be very inclusive and are open to feedback - either about the techniques themselves or their instruction methodology.
