Springfield, MO Study Group
Est. November 2021
Welcome to the Schola Saint George - Springfield Study Group! We held an organizational meeting on Saint George's Day, April 23rd.
We focus on the combatives and feats of arms, including both unarmoured and armoured fighting. We're "application agnostic," meaning our combatants exercise themselves in arms through a variety of formats: HEMA, SCA, mixed martial arts, combatives. We welcome all who are interested in Fiore dei Liberi's l'arte d'armizare. We're non-political and focused on the fun part--the fighting!
We have launched weekly meetings/practices/training sessions every Tuesday at 6 pm, beginning on May 3rd. During the summer months we will be meeting at Fassnight Park, 1301 S. Campbell Avenue https://parkboard.org/.../facility/details/Fassnight-Park-36
Adjustments due to inclement weather will be announced on the FaceBook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/7406760062698847/.
If you are interested in Medieval Sword fighting we would love for you to come check us out.
