Copenhagen Historical Fencing Club is Denmarks largest club working on reconstructing armed and unarmed combat with roots in European history tracing back to year 1300. Our work is historically accurate and based on fencing manual research combined with modern knowledge.
Even though the first known fencing manual dates back to the year 1300, it does not stop us from exploring further back in time by studying weapons and combat from earlier periods. THe club was founded in 2008 by Martin K. Holtmann.
