IMPORTANT UPDATE

Sadly until we are informed otherwise our venue has cancelled all hall hires so SHF will not be running Sunday or Monday classes. We will inform you when we are able to reopen!

Southampton Historical Fencing is a Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) group based in the heart of Southampton. We study late 16th and early 17th Century Itallian sidesword and rapier currently focussing on the works of Florentine fencing master Marco Docciolini.

Our membership is made up of practicioners from all walks of life with a variety of experience and ability when they joined us. Together we hope to understand the martial arts of renaisssance Italy by putting the techniques written by the masters of the time into practice.
