Montgomery, AL area Study Group

est. Nov. 2018

During COVID, we have started classes focused on social distance, working mainly outside with longer distance weapons, such as spear. 

Our Swedish student has returned to Sweden. Liz brought energy, passion and capabilty, but we're not missing a beat as we roll into a new academic year

Practice times are Sundays, 10:30-12:30, conveniently before the SCA practice in Millbrook, which runs starting at 2pm! They are held in Wetumpka, where we have the workshop, Dr. Price's library, and indoor/outdoor facilities.

SSG Montgomery is truly "application agnostic," meaning that we welcome those who want to improve their study of the late medieval sword and the affiliated weapons, whether they play in HEMA, the SCA, ACL, or other groups that practice feats of arms. We will sponsor at least one medieval-style feat of arms per year!

 

Newcomers are encouraged to come - no equipment required to start - we have ample loaner gear for the first few weeks.  

TRAINING PREFERENCES

Beginners start with lightweight "poly" trainers; sparring is done with light or medium-weight trainers, progressing to rebated steel as armour and other gear is acquired. 

Medieval shoes recommended to start (to get the footwork right); gardening-type or swordsmans' gloves, comfortable clothing. 

Recommend acquisition of a padded gambeson, HEMA-style mask or helmet, and gauntlets or modern hand protection for sparring. 

We really want to move everyone towards authentic gear, even for practice. 

COSTS & FEES

Before sparring, students must become members of the SSG, Inc., which is $35/year. 

$20/month tuition/floor fees to start
