Resources for Historical European Martial Arts

Since discovering that historical European martial arts (HEMA) is an active field of study and practice and joining my own local club, I’ve discovered a lot of great information about HEMA online. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found so far. There are dozens of other blogs and probably hundreds of videos, but I’m only listing the ones that I feel are the best and most instructive. If you have other recommendations, please leave a comment!

    I love your blog and want to thank you for sharing these resources! I too am a fantasy writer who studies HEMA! I can’t wait till Hollywood fantasy movies show sword fighting realistically!
