Tucson club brings medieval sword fighting into the present

The Tucson Historic Fencing Club is more than just sword fighting. It’s a fencing group for history buffs!

The club practices Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), teaching material from a number of historic texts.

With members of all ages and professions, the club focuses on the techniques and unique weaponry of ancient civilizations in addition to fencing.

Fighters work with a variety of historic European weapons such as the longsword, sword and buckler, dagger, rapier and more.

Like most sporting groups, the real fun comes when traveling for competition and competing against other historical martial artists across the country.
