About The Club

Southampton Historical Fencing was started as a study group in April 2017 by Joshua R. Bradshaw with the intention of allowing HEMAists in Southampton a chance to get together and share knowledge.

After a few months of regular study groups Southampton Historical Fencing began to focus on Doccciolini’s Treatise on the Subject of Fencing. Along the way we also dabbled in Dall’Agocchie’s Dell’Arte di Scrima Libri Tre making some YouTube videos along the way. In our regular Sunday study groups we have also explored the works of Fiore, Meyer, Angelo and Roworth amongst others.
