Cambridge HEMA

Cambridge HEMA is a historical fencing club based in Cambridge, UK. Our primary focus of study is Liechtenauer's tradition of fighting with the longsword, using Sigmund Ringeck's manual as our primary source material. We train as a study group, so each member is encouraged to bring helpful thoughts and ideas to the exploration of the sources we work on.
