Welcome to Maryland KdF!

We are Maryland Kunst des Fechtens - a group  dedicated to learning the martial arts of medieval Germany. 

Members of our club primarily learn the art of the longsword based on the teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer from selected sources, but may also delve into sword and buckler, spear and polearms, messer, dagger and wrestling, or more esoteric weapons.

A training session may include strength training and conditioning, fencing fundamentals and mechanics, technical interpretation drills, sparring games, cutting practice, and coached free fencing.

Are you interested in learning HEMA? Sign up for our Beginner's Longsword Class! You are also more than welcome to sit in on a class to decide if this is for you.
