Ever wanted to star in your own Game of Thrones? We'll show you how at KDF Manchester!
Historic European Martial Arts (HEMA) is an exciting emerging sport, similar to fencing but with simpler rules and bigger swords.
We try to revive the lost art of European weapons combat from historic texts, and compete in judged competition.
HEMA is what you make of it! That is why we feel it is crucial that everyone can approach it in their own way. You will not be pressured into a situation you are not comfortable with, but we also approve of getting stuck in and 'learning by doing'. Make new friends by hitting them!
Sessions involve practice drills, sparring and team games. We have both foam and blunt steel swords, and a wide variety of protective equipment is available. Although we insist students take every care to look after their training partners, we cannot exclude the possibility of injury, and you practice HEMA at your own risk.
You can find us next to the Sikh temple. And if you are using your sat nav to get to us, then the postcode is M14 4GP.
