UWF HEMA Fencing Club

HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts. Our club focuses on pre-20th century swordsmanship. The main facets of the club lie in Italian Rapier and German Longsword for the purposes of HEMA and SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) competition.


Fencing Club

The HEMA Fencing Club does not require any dues, and nearly all gear is available to loan for practices. After about two weeks of drills and footwork (4-6 practices) new fencers should be ready to graduate to free sparring and begin their fencing careers. No prior experience is required.

The club informally maintains the name Salle McAfee, named for the former club instructor Ron McAfee who was killed in a car accident in January 2005.
