what gear do i need to get started?


Beginner classes

  • 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 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.

Contact us with any questions you may have about classes or equipment.  brian.artedellabellica@gmail.com
