"The Austin Historical Weapons Guild is a great group of people who are genuinely enthusiastic and love what they do. The instructors are professional, friendly, and knowledgeable and they're a lot of fun to work with. I'd recommend anyone looking to get into HEMA look into training with them or doing their online courses!"
"The Virtual Beginner's Course was a great overview of several weapons with a little bit for everyone! Anthony and Anna demonstrated basic guards and cuts while providing best practices, tips, and historical context. Videos were fun and engaging. The course set-up was flexible enough to accommodate different schedules and despite being virtual, I still got meaningful feedback on my form and technique. I've learned so much and am looking forward to more classes!"
"Thanks to Anthony and Anna, the class was very inexpensive, and their teaching and feedback style made it incredibly easy to learn and retain the information that was taught as well as making the feedback simple and direct. If you're in the Austin area and are at all interested in historical swordsmanship I would highly recommend reaching out and seeing what class options are available."
