Black Flag HEMA is a Historical European Martial Arts club in Tampa, FL focusing on longsword, rapier, saber, dussack, and the overall martial traditions of Europe and the West from the 16th through the 19th century.

Want to learn to swordfight like the masters of centuries past? Want to learn to swordfight at all? Looking to bring a level of realism to your stage combat and choreographed sword fights? Looking to expand from olympic-style fencing or other martial arts? Come play with us!

We have loaner gear available and meet at the Northdale Rec Center on Mondays and Thursday. Come out and try your hand at fighting like a knight, a pirate, or whatever you like - your first class is always free to participate or simply come and observe! Visit our Class Information page for more details on when to come out to your first class!
