The Leading Resource for Historical Fencing and Medieval & Renaissance Combat Skills - Online since 1996

ARMA - WMA HEMA Historical European Martial Arts - Medieval and Renaissance Fencing Fighting Combat History, Heritage, Camaraderie, Self-Defense…

The ARMA’s website is the Internet's premier source for historical European fencing and fighting arts. ARMA focuses on researching and reviving the forgotten teachings of the historical Masters of Defence and fighting schools. Sharing love for the culture of swords and swordsmanship from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, we offer authoritative information to improve understanding of these combatives and advance the quality of demonstrated skill. Offering free educational resources and information to celebrate and explore our Western martial heritage, we pursue armed and unarmed knightly combat methods, swordplay, rapier fencing, and other weaponry. Raising the legitimacy and credibility of historical European martial arts practice while promoting its serious investigation, we feature volumes of study materials to improve knowledge among those sharing the same motives, goals, and values. ARMA is the cutting edge in the study and legitimate practice of authentic Renaissance martial arts. We also provide professional accreditation in a leading historical fencing curriculum aimed at reviving and restoring this intangible cultural heritage.

The ARMA: real world skills from real world history.
