What is San Diego Longsword?
San Diego Longsword is a Western Martial Arts (WMA) or Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) interpretive training class, coordinated by the Chivalry Today Educational Program.
The study and practice of historical European sword combat (sometimes called historical fencing, or just plain “sword fighting”) is a growing field of sport and recreation – an entertaining way to discover a fascinating part of medieval and Renaissance history; get some great physical exercise; and a wonderful place to make some new friends.
