  • Do you want to learn to fight like the knights of the middle ages?

    Our Armored Combat practice is a full-contact sport. We fight with heavy wooden weapons made from rattan and wear metal and leather armor for protection.
  • Do you want to learn fine control of the blade like the duelists of the Renaissance?

    Our Historical Fencing practice is a limited-contact sport. We fight with light metal swords and wear protective gear and fencing masks to keep each other safe.

The practice will be held in a 1-on-1 duelist format to get us ready for Birka tourneys both the fencing and Bear Pit armored combat.

– PARKING! There is plenty of street parking right by the venue
– Bathrooms on site
– Indoor heated location to change in
– Brick oven pizza and a full bar to celebrate our success afterward

Suggested donation: $10 per person
