Recommended Equipment

HEMA involves the practice of martial techniques and we take the safety of our members seriously. For participation in classes, minimum required gear is a pair of protective gloves (hockey or lacrosse gloves are an acceptable minimum), a fencing mask, and a sword. For new students, we have loaner equipment available; however, if you are looking to purchase your own, below is a list of equipment we recommend to get you started.
All listed equipment is sorted based on price from lowest to highest.
