Zwaard & Steen is a group of people with a passion for history, martial arts and sports (also called: H.E.M.A.: Historical European Martial Arts). Practicing European medieval martial arts combines sports, exercise and insight in historical fighting styles. It is a unique experience where gaining knowledge goes hand in hand with improving your fitness and confidence. In our classes, we train with the European longsword, dagger and unarmed combat. We base our training on medieval German manuscripts like the Codex Ringeck and Codex von Danzig. Drop by for a free lesson or visit our stall for workshops and demos.
Besides the regular classes we organize the largest European longsword tournament, The Dutch Lions Cup on August 26th in Utrecht. 01
