Swords of the West is a historical fencing group based in Knocknacarra, Galway. Our training draws from the fencing manuals of Sigmund Ringeck, Joachim Meyer, and Fiore dei Liberi, along with other manuals and treatises dating from the 13th to 19th century. The main focus is upon fencing with the Longsword. Our secondary studies are the Sabre and the Dagger. The primary goal is learning the practical applications of these methods of fencing as performed in the time period, as well as their use in modern tournaments and events.
