Fencing in the light

Fencing for everyone !

Everyone is welcome to come and try fencing with us. We also do showfights and show examples of the coolest techniques from ancient manuscripts.

We have foam swords, gloves and helmets, so both adults and children can participate safely.

You can find info about us here:

Reykjavik HEMA Club is a group dedicated to practicing HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). The historical part means that the techniques we learn and practice comes from manuscripts that were originally written down hundreds of years ago. Unlike modern fencing sports like Olympic Fencing, HEMA hasn't really changed much from the time when you had to count on your swordhand for your life.
