The Davis Historical Fencing Club focuses on the use of the Dussack, the early saber predominant in East and Central Europe through the 16th and 17th centuries, and other historical systems of fencing. We are part of a larger, growing tradition in North America and Europe called HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). 

Our dussack system is based on the teachings of Joachim Meyer, a German fencing master. Advanced students are given the opportunity to practice longsword fencing based on the Germanic Lichtenauer tradition and Italian Fiore tradition. Our club is partnered with the Sacramento Freifechter, a fencing school dedicated to longsword fencing after Joachim Meyer's system. For more information, please visit http://www.freifechter.com/study-groups/region-vi/allerheiligstadt-schule-des-fechtens

We are a friendly, open group that welcomes new members and provides loaner equipment for newcomers. Come in comfortable exercise clothes/shoes and bring water and your curiosity.
