Ironclad Academy of the Sword has existed for over a decade, predominantly as a competitive HEMA and reenactment group. Our reenactment focus has been predominantly centered around tournament and theatric combat during period around the 1330 – 1450.
From a martial perspective our club trains from Joachim Meyer’s art of combat manual in Longsword. As the club has expanded we offer training and combat with a variety of weapons and combat styles also covered in this book.
One of the alternate styles that has interested some of our experienced members is HMB dueling. Initially our plan is focus purely on Sword/Shield with a potential to expand to Longsword. At this stage there is no plan to move towards buhurt.
