Our Group

We are a group of the TV 1848 Erlangen. We want to revive the old european martial arts. For this purpose we are using historical sources, the so called „Fechtbücher“ (fencing manuals) of the middle ages.

We are using our primary weapon according the „Merkverse“ (memory verse) of Liechtenauer. We are using other historical weapons like Sword & Buckler, Dagger, Messer and the Quarterstaff according to historical examples. To all these techniques belongs grappling with and without weapon.

We are no Reenactment-Group or LARPer! Our task is a authentical reconstruction of the historical european martial arts.

Our group is a diverse bunch made up of people from all walks of life and ages.

We train wednesday and thursday, except on holidays. During summer holidays we meet outdoor on the FC-West.

If you are interested then contact us via email or phone.

We are happy to lend you a trainings weapon, if you contact us early enough.

You have to be at least 16 years old. Participants under 18 years needs a written approval of their parents. The trainer reserves the right to exclude participants who are not suitable.
