HFA AFFILIATE CLUBS
BIG TREE COMBAT ACADEMY
At BTCC we teach classical German KDF techniques from the late medieval and early renaissance period in a way that makes them accessible and easy to learn, yet still hard to master! Drawing on modern training methods and practices we combine historical techniques with modern sports science in a unique and extremely effective manner.
The Old Sword Club
At The Old Sword Club we practice fencing as used in life and death duels, self defence and on the bloody battlefield’s of the past. Working from historical swordplay manuals we reconstruct swordplay primarily from late 19th century Britain and test our interpretations through competitive sparring.
GUNNING DISTRICT SWORD FIGHTERS
The Gunning District Sword Fighters is a HEMA style fencing club which studies British fencing treatises from the 18th and 19th century.
Sessions run at 6pm at the Gunning Scout Hall on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday pending availability.
