The Medieval European Martial Arts Guild was officially founded in March of 2006 by Cory Winslow, John Bax, and Joshua Reptsik. It was the aim of all involved to create a fellowship of dedicated researchers, practitioners and instructors of Historical European Martial Arts who would aid each other in their endeavors and help resurrect these lost arts. Later, Robert Koulakjian, Chuck Wyatt, and Betsy Taylor joined the ranks of MEMAG instructors, adding new insight and observations to MEMAG’s interpretations. Together it is our goal to educate our students and the public as much as possible about HEMA, as well as train our students to be efficient and historically accurate Martial Artists that Master Liechtenauer himself would have been proud of. The MEMAG is an organization consisting of three historical fencing schools that instruct students in the fighting system developed by the 14th century German fencing master, Johannes Liechtenauer. Primary training is based on the use of the longsword, but classes are available in the use of the whole range of Medieval weapons, as well as some Renaissance ones.
