Our Mission

The Michigan Medieval Combat Association invites sword fighters of all skill levels to join us in learning medieval martial arts!

Our courses revolve around interpreting fighting techniques described and illustrated in historical manuscripts and then performing them in safe but realistic combat scenarios.




What We Do

  • The study and practice of historical European martial arts (HEMA). 
  • We Use modern safety equipment and emphasize a safe learning environment 
  • We practice a real fighting art, our intention is not to put on displays or to entertain the public. We do not practice theatrical swordplay, nor do we practice “live-action role-playing” 
  • Historical combat has many modern world benefits such as fitness, coordination, and confidence 
  • Anyone is welcome to train with us regardless of gender, race, or religion
