Steel Ring Academy
Steel Ring Academy is a historical sword fighting school in the Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) community.
Have you ever wished you could swordfight like the heroes in your favorite video game, movie, or book? Steel Ring Academy offers historical sword fighting classes using a manuscript from 1570 to teach actual sword techniques and sparring, with the benefit of modern safety equipment. Students use steel longsword feders for foundational skills and sparring, and progress through a ranking system to track their progress.
SRA prides itself on being a welcoming and positive environment. If you are interested in sword fighting for history, fitness, or just because it's a whole lot of fun, there is a place for you at SRA. Step into the ring and discover the art and sport of HEMA.
