Athena School of Arms promotes physical fitness and the study of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) by providing individual training and public demonstrations. Our motto is: “Swords Are Fun!” By sharing the historical context and martial principles found in HEMA in a safe and open environment, we can help others gain an appreciation for our art and become more physically fit in the process.
Fight masters from the 14th-16th century wrote treatises that described how to fight with a variety of medieval weapons. We use these manuals to recreate ancient fighting styles. We are a non-profit Historical European Martial Arts school, and a member of the Historical European Martial Arts Alliance.
We regularly practice at our Cambridge, MA location, compete at regional and national tournaments, and attend local conventions and fairs in an effort to introduce the public to HEMA.
