Note: Fechtkunst is no longer operating, but all is not lost! Perth based HEMA is alive and well at Darksun. What is Darksun? It’s is a swordplay and medieval interest group in Perth, focused primarily on Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and its national growth. They attend local medieval fayres, private events, run club tournaments and regularly attend national & international HEMA events and tournaments.
Darksun currently train on Tuesdays and Thursdays (18:30-20:30) at North Beach Recreation Centre in Stirling (https://goo.gl/maps/g17kaY3tJWu), with the first half of the evening being focused on technique & instruction, and the second half being focused on free sparring and event preparation. Their training sessions are martially driven, building strength & fitness, drilling plays and techniques from source material, and using focused and free sparring to implement the techniques & principles we explore. Full training details and club updates are available on our Facebook page: Facebook.com/darksunmedievalcombat
