Qmul hema! (Historical European Martial Arts) Swordfighting!


Want to learn how to swing and fight with swords just as people did back in the medieval times? Hema (Historical European martial arts) is just that: the study of medieval manucripts and learning how people fought back in the day and using it to win against an opponent. From the early shortsword and buckler of the 1300s up till the recent officer sabers in the gunpowder era. 

QM HEMA  aims to have you try out this dangerous sport you always wanted to try in a safe and friendly environment. We will provide you with all of the equipment you need and will help you improve yourself. However, if you are intrested in further learning, we would offer buying advice and clubs outside of uni for you to become the next HEMA champion!


Taster Sessions

Since this is a brand new club recent founded, our taster sessions would be the first session you attend, afterwards you would require a membership to enter.


Every other Monday 8-9am starting 24th October in Qmotion Sports Hall (enter through Qmotion entrance). These are our offical times as the sports hall is fully booked. If you cant attend dont worry, we have many unofficial sessions either in the sports hall or outside, we post the times at least 1 day in advance so please join our whatsapp group to get updates.

The membership includes all equipment needed (unless you want to use your own). This includes swords, protective equipment and everything else you may need including a full academic year of sessions! 


Not yet, we are a new club and as we get better we will join national hema competitions!
