Fencers From The Roof. Group led by Michael Beck.
Historical European Martial Arts Class.
Fencer's from the Roof HEMA is located in Niagara Falls, New York as part of the Musubi Dojo Collective. Our main focus is on the German Longsword. We are open to analyze other weapon systems, depending on group interest. Our training involves the interpretation of Medieval and Renaissance texts, with the goal of a faithful recreation. Our methodology is heat-tested and refined through regular sparring both internally and with other clubs. Our written sources include Nuremberg Hausbuch (MS 3227a) and Fechtbuch des Peter von Danzig Cod.44A8. Compilation texts are available to the student as both digital and physical media.
Training weapons are available for rent, but regular students are quickly required to purchase their own.
