Brief Information in English

Uppsala Historiska Fäktskola (UHFS) means Uppsala Historical Fencing School. We train Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA); longsword, sword and buckler, rapier with and without dagger, sabre and historical wrestling. There are other weapons and traditions described in the historical sources, but we mainly focus on the mentioned fields.

We accept beginners to our trainings every autumn. The next beginners admission starts with an introductory training 170910 at 17-21 in the E hall at Fyrishov. There will be opportunities to try most of the weapons we train regularly. The price of the introductory training is 50 SEK. There are changing rooms available at Fyrishov, but it might be convenient to come in training clothes. Bring indoors training shoes, that do not leave marks on the floor. We recommend bringing something to eat and a bottle of water.

The regular classes are listed in the schedule, but in short it is Sundays (sword & buckler, sabre and longsword) 17-21 in Fyrishov hall E, Mondays (open, if there is interest) 20.00-22.00 in Ekonomikumparken (outside) and Wednesdays (longsword) in Liljeforsskolan 20-22. Information about equipment is currently available in Swedish, but contact one of the instructors for advice.
