what gear do i need to get started?
Students do not need to bring their own gear, we have loaner gear available for beginners to get started. We recommend gym appropriate clothing and a bottle of water for beginner classes.
Regular class requires you to bring your own gorget (throat protector), hard elbows, knees, shins and groin protection.
Students are encouraged to buy their own weapons, HEMA masks, heavy HEMA gloves, and forearm protectors, and a fencing jacket that meets or exceeds 350n puncture resistance, but we also have some to borrow.
