Krieg School of Historical Fencing

Our club began in 1999 under the name of Tampa Fechtschule, and was rechristened Krieg School in 2009 when head instructor Ben Floyd took over as leader of the club. Ben and his wife Meg would later go on to open a new location in Denver, CO in 2015. We are a internationally competitive group dedicated to the study and propagation of HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). We study and practice the longsword techniques described in the fight books written by medieval and Renaissance German sword masters–primarily those of Joachim Meyer and other masters in the lineage of Johannes Lichtenauer. Additionally we study Italian rapier, primarily focused on the traditions of the Italian masters Capoferro, Giganti, and Fabris.

Our motto is Artem per certamen monstrans or, “Showing art through combat.” Our emphasis is performance under actual bouting and sparring conditions as the highest expression of the art and the truest test of skill. No lip service or explanations needed.

Krieg School is dedicated to the revival of Europe's lost martial traditions via rigorous research, training, and modern competition.

Krieg School is all about creating an environment where students can experience the fun and satisfaction of historical fencing. In addition, we are dedicated to the revival, practice, and promotion of historical European martial arts (HEMA), both within o
