Welcome to the Gothenburg Free Fencers Guild!
In our club we practice what is called Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA). Our focus is primarily on the time period of 14-1600s and we all practice with many different weapons. Our ambition is to run a club that is open to everyone, young and old, men and women. No matter who you are, we want to give you intensive training that is fun and interesting, that is both physically and mentally challenging, and which helps everyone to grow and evolve, no matter what level they are at.
The fencing can sometimes look violent and scary, but we are all concerned about each others’ safety and the injury frequency is very low. Lower than both football and hockey. For that reason, everyone can feel safe with us and everyone is more than welcome to come by and try HEMA out, even if they lack all earlier experience in training martial arts.
