The Academy offers regular classes for adults covering a wide range of weapons and styles, all of which fall under the umbrella of Historical European Martial Arts.
Joining our classes will help you to:
Get in shape and stay in shape
Fencing and martial arts are excellent exercise, and our classes can provide both the opportunity and the motivation to develop the kind of core strength that keeps you feeling good about yourself and your body.
Sharpen your mind
Studying the Noble Science involves developing a sense of tactical awareness and cultivating the ability to make decisions under pressure. Students who are interested in the academic side of HEMA will also have the opportunity to directly study Medieval and Renaissance texts, hone their critical thinking skills, and potentially even learn a new language. Higher-ranking students are called Scholars, with good reason.
Connect with the past
Though our equipment is modern, our art is ancient. At the Noble Science Academy, we are part of a tradition that stretches back centuries, and we learn the exact same principles and techniques that were taught to knights of old.
Don't worry about equipment—we'll provide everything you need.
