Where to find us

Our Classes meet at the Roberts Creek Community Hall, located in Roberts Creek BC on the Sunshine Coast.

What to bring with you

In terms of fencing masks, gloves, and training swords, we have some equipment to borrow. No need to worry about any of this! However, if you do have your own fencing mask or other gear already, then please bring that with you.

Although we have a uniform of a T-shirt with our Academy Emblem, you don’t need to worry about it for your first session. Come wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that will allow for movement – jeans and denim are typically a bad idea. You should bring sensible indoor footwear; boots, high heels, and formal shoes are not recommended!

A bottle of water is also a good idea.

What is the training and sword fighting like?

Our approach to learning HEMA is to train it in a functional fashion, as a proper martial art. We usually begin with a gentle warm-up to loosen off the body and to get our heads in the zone, then we do some very simple solo drills or paired drills. These drills gradually increase in complexity over the course of the session. This means that sessions are entirely accessible to new people, while they still contain value for more experienced practitioners.

We are not a re-enactment club, nor do we do bohurt or HMB style fighting. We focus on reconstructing a particular kind of sword fighting from historical source material, and making that work in a functional and effective fashion.

Do we do any sparring?

Yes; sparring is an important part of our training process. We try to do this on a regular basis wherever possible.

The kind of sparring that we do is not particularly heavy-contact or competitive in focus.


We have some protective gear for our students to borrow, until they are able to get their own. We do not do sparring right away as first it is important to learn all of the different positions and safety measures. 

Is there a fee for the first night?

Currently, yes. We do ask for a pre-paid registration fee of $25 for your first session.

We also offer a package deal if you sign up for 5 classes you receive 20% off!

Are the Classes Suitable for all ages?

Yes Our classes are suitable for all ages. Whenever there is enough interest we are happy to offer separate classes for adults youth and children.

If you are interested, please email us to let us know or feel free to register for the 12 & under class. If there is enough registered participants we will offer the class, if not we will give the registered participants a full refund & notify them when enough people join our waitlist and we are able to offer the classes on a regular basis.

Children 13 & over are welcome to join our adult classes & if there are enough youth registered we will offer a separate class for youth age 13-17. Minors will require informed consent by their parent or legal guardian. These waivers can be filled out in person on the first day of the class or the parent or guardian may feel free to make an appointment with us ahead of time to sign the waiver.


Thank you & Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
