Here at the Imperial School of Swordsmanship, we hope to enable all that come to train with us with the same level of enthusiasm and passion for Medieval Swordsmanship that got us started.

Over centuries, many a Sword Master has written numerous Treaties and Instructions for their Lords, Kingships and Nobel men, however unlike the eastern treaties that have been passed down through generation, the western or Historical European Martial Arts Treaties are limited in availability.

There are many surviving instructions in Log Swords, Rapier, Scottish Broadswords etc. in circulation and can be acquired through libraries or specialist book stores, there is just so much these book teach due to the language barrier as the methodology.

We aspire to study and learn the principals of swordsmanship without the boundaries of a particular system but rather to observe and understand the similarities of footwork, style, methodology and pedagogy of different martial arts while putting them into practical application terms for deeper understanding.
