HEMA training opportunities in Switzerland

The following are known locations where regular trainings in HEMA take place. Listed are member groups’ trainings, trainings by unaffiliated groups in Switzerland, and trainings near the Swiss border (so that they are the closest options for some places in Switzerland). Not listed are groups dedicated to theatrical fencing / show fighting (but some of the groups listed do train choreographed fights alongside standard HEMA).

Members: please use the contact form or e-mail if you wish to communicate changes in schedule!
