Welcome to Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) at Embry-Riddle!
What is HEMA? HEMA is a catch-all term that refers to any study of historical combat practices from Europe, although it generally refers to the medieval combat of knights and kings.
The HEMA club at Embry-Riddle focuses primarily on the studies of the European longsword (as taught by Italian masters in the XIII Century and German masters in the XVI Century), although the club is fully willing to facilitate your studies in sabers, quarterstaff, spears, sword and shield, and more!
HEMA is an international, full-contact sport and is officially recognized in most countries throughout the world!
