About Modern Sword Fighting (MSF)

Since ancient times people have fought with swords but it was during the Middle Ages that this skill was perfected. Manuscripts and books on the art of sword fighting were written by combat masters seeking to train others in their art. These books have preserved a wealth of information which MSF uses to maintain and develop the historic tradition of sword fighting. MSF strives to be a unique sport for everyone, regardless of sex, age, or disability.
