About the Academy

The Seven Swords Academy is a school of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and Swordsmanship located within the Warrior Life Center,Tacoma, Washington. We primarily study and practice Late Medieval Longsword and its accompanying arts of Grappling, Dagger, Spear and Polearms. We work through both the scholarship and practical application of historical manuals left to us by Masters of the Art from the late 14th to 15th centuries, such as Fiore dei Liberi and Filippo Vadi, the Liechtenauer Tradition (Doebringer, Ringek, and von Danzig) as well as any manual that can further our understanding of the material. Though not our primary effort, we also study Sword and Buckler, Short Sword, Sabre, Rapier, and Single-stick as many of the fundamental principles apply.

  1. Are you still teaching classes? My 12 yr old son is interested. Please let me know if we can come to a class to try it out. He is available Tuesday and Thursday’s. Could he participate in the Family class?
