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.

Though somewhat expensive, the class is entertaining and educational. The instructors are first class. If you are interested in Historical European Martial Arts, this it's a great place to learn.

Such a fun class! Great instructors and it was really exciting to learn a new skill. I have already signed up for their 8 week beginner course.

It was a great experience being a first timer. Andrews, the coach was very good. He taught basic skills or how to hold the sword, upper cuts, lower cuts etc. But I think it was a little bit expensive. Probably 20 USD for one person would have been good. Anyways, a good experience. Would recommend others to try !
