Weekly Classes, Foundations
Our Foundation classes teach one- and two-handed swordsmanship, as
well as medieval wrestling and dagger. Expect an awesome full-body workout, active study of historical technique, and
high-intensity drilling to pressure-test class material.
Students are welcome to join Foundation classes at any time, regardless of skill or experience.
Foundation Memberships include classes every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 7PM to 10PM.
Using the longsword, this 2-hour class will introduce the basic principles of structure, distance, timing, attack and defense that apply to all hand-to-hand weapon systems.
This is an excellent choice if you:
- Want to try before you buy.
- Are looking for a fun, one-off activity.
- Think a friend or family member might love to sword fight!
Intro Workshops are only $40 and take place on the first Sunday of every month at 4PM.
If you’re looking for a fun, unique way to bring your team together, AWMA offers customizable, one-off events designed to provide a fun, group-oriented environment.

Our school loves sharing what we do with our local community. Using history, martial arts and amazing presentations, we bring the medieval and renaissance to life in a way that can awe children, inspire teens, and remind adults that their childhood dreams may not be so far off.
If your event, school, library, club, or other organization would like to schedule one or more demonstrations, please reach out to us!
