Madison MFFG

The Goodman Center (above) is where we hold our weekly sessions and practice on Sundays from 4:30-6:30pm.


The Madison Freifechter Guild studies the Art of Fencing as described by Joachim Meyer, a 16th Century cutler and fencing master living in the Holy Roman Empire. With Meyer’s volumes on fencing we explore the history and martial use of common weapons of the era, including the longsword, dagger, dusack, rapier, and polearms. As a study group of the international history fencing organization, the Meyer Freifechter Guild (MFFG) leans on a collective knowledge that extends back to our founding in 2008.
