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 come together to train and spar with the Art of Fencing as described by Joachim Meyer, a 16th Century fencing master who lived 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 historical fencing organization, the Meyer Freifechter Guild (MFFG) leans on a collective knowledge that extends back to our founding in 2008. Starting in May on Sunday the ninth 2021. We resume Sunday Night collective training and Fight Nights from 4:30pm-6:30pm at the Goodman Community Center in September 2021 on Sunday the twelfth.
