Glasgow HEMA  - Swordfighting classes in Glasgow

Glasgow HEMA is one of Glasgow's premier clubs dedicated to the study of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA). HEMA is a sport that takes historical manuals on swordsmanship and other martial practices and recreates their art. At Glasgow HEMA we primarily focus on the German School of Fencing and 18th Century British Swordmanship.

German Longsword - One of the largest HEMA disciplines, the Longsword was practised extensively between the early 15th  and 17th Centuries.


Messer, German for "knife" was a long blade designed to be a common sidearm for everyone, it was a popular weapon in the medieval German Schools of Fencing with many Masters writing about it.
