New & Forming Societies
The intention of this page is to offer slightly longer listings of new and forming societies, their interests, membership and goals.
If you'd like to form a society or find other people in your area to form a society with, then send me your details along with an outline of your interests, experience, preferred weapons/period of swordplay. It would also be useful if you could outline what you're looking for and what resources you currently have access to.

The main focus of this group is 15thC Italian martial arts, primarily based on Fiore dei Liberi, but also Filippo Vadi.
