At the Academy we practice the full range of western martial arts from swords to polearms to dagger and hand-to-hand fighting (with a special love of the sword!). Emphasizing effective real-world techniques, the AES follows the teachings of several medieval and renaissance masters from all over Europe, while focusing on the teachings of the great German master, Johannes Liecthenauer. Western martial arts offers one of the most well-rounded curriculums of any fighting style and includes weapons and grappling. We study all period weapons including polearms, swords and hand-to-hand fighting. If you seek an authentic martial arts experience in an inclusive atmosphere that emphasizes real-world techniques over stage fighting and repetitive forms, look no further than the AES.

As well, we offer Western Canada’s largest Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) tournament and workshop, Nordschlag, every year, with competitors from all over Western Canada and, sometimes, other countries (

Our school offers exclusive workshops and tournaments open to members only. We are the leader in Western Martial Arts in Canada, founded in 1994, Canada’s first WMA/HEMA school
