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!
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.
Qmotion sports hall Wendsday 9:30 to 11:30 am (enter through Qmotion entrance). These are our offical times, for which we have access to the full Hall. If you cannot attend don't worry, we have many unofficial sessions either in the sports hall or outside, including regular Saturday ones.
The membership includes all equipment needed (though there is an option if you want to use your own). This includes swords, protective equipment and everything else you may need including a full year of sessions!
We have this year begun to send out our more experienced members to national HEMA competitions!
We host in-club tournaments as well where you can test your skill against fellow club-members. These tournaments have entrance fees that go towards prizes for the winners
Coaching and Teaching
Since we are a new club, funding is limmited so our committee have learnt from outside clubs or self taught. We will teach to the best of our ability.
