The Medieval European Martial Arts Guild is an association of modern-day fechtschulen (fencing-schools) devoted to the study, training, and reconstruction of the combative arts developed in Europe during the Middle-Ages and Renaissance.
Our studies focus on the Kunst des Fechtens (Art of Fighting) of Master Johannes Liechtenauer, who lived in what is now Germany in the fourteenth century. Master Liechtenauer’s art has survived the treacherous passage of time in the form of several fechtbucher (fight-books) written by various Masters from within his long-lived tradition. It is from these writings that MEMAG has devised interpretations and accompanying curriculums that are used to instruct modern students in the ways of the Medieval German Masters of the Kunst des Fechtens.
MEMAG currently has clubs in three locations which hold regular classes in the use of several types of Medieval weaponry. Please look through our website to find out more about our Guild, learn about Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), finds links to other clubs, learn about our curriculum, and find information about how to join a MEMAG club near you.
