Classes & Training
Our classes are twice a week from 18:30-20:30 on Monday and Wednesday evenings in St. Catherine’s Sports Centre, Marrowbone Lane, Dublin 8. Classes rotate between Longsword and Sword & Buckler, with weapons switching every eight weeks so if you can only make it to training once a week you will still have the opportunity to train in both weapons.
We also run an internal club league which meets on the last Sunday of the month. Here members have the opportunity to partake in competitive sparring against other members in a friendly and relaxed environment. This is a great opportunity to test the skills you are learning in class and prepare for tournaments at the various HEMA events throughout the year if you wish.
You do not need any equipment when you start as there is spare loaner equipment for new members. All we ask is that you bring comfortable training clothes and a bottle of water because you will get a good workout. There is a flat membership fee of €40 per month regardless of how many classes you can attend and an annual insurance fee of €50 per annum. For more information please see our FAQs and event pages.
