    Melbourne Swordplay Guild

    I recently started looking for a HEMA style school in Melbourne, without very high hopes, but a quick search turned up this - The Melbourne Swordplay Guild.

    http://msg.swordplay.org.au/

    According to the site it's affiliated with the Australian Historical Swordplay Federation, not sure if that's a good thing, I'm a total noob to this stuff. They also state that they are the longest running HEMA school in VIC.

    They run classes only one night a week though, which would turn out to be fine, since I'd rather have more time left in the week when I get back to BJJ.

    I have holidays currently and was thinking of taking a look at a class, but I thought I'd ask if anyone had experience with them, or any other HEMA schools in the Melbourne area.

    Thanks guys.

    I remember corresponding with a couple of these guys on Sword Forum, years ago. Never met them, but I've no reason to doubt that it's a good club - you should at least check out a class if you're interested in this stuff.

    I'm so jealous man. I've wanted to try a bit of Longsword training for years now, but don't have a school within reach :/

    When I move back to London at the end of this year I'm going to have to try and find one..

    I found a website a while ago which had a number of Longsword clubs listed around the UK, with a handful reachable from my London address. I'm definitely going to give them a look when I'm back there; it looks like it'd be a really fun and challenging contrast to my usual training.

    In London, there's Schola Gladiatoria (Fiore), Dave Rawlings (various), the London Sword and Dagger Club (Fiore) and I'm trying to get a KdF (Lichtenauer) study group off the ground.
