Under direction of Travis Emery (Knight Sentry), the UCSA is a Historical European Martial Arts class practicing in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our primary weapon of study is the long sword though we also teach short sword, dagger, buckler, polehammer, messer, spear, as well as unarmed fighting and defense. as well as technique to fight against all of these.  All weapons used in class are made of synthetic plastic, or with the correct protective equipment steel practice weapons. Most of the swords we use come from Purpleheart Armoury, or South Coast Swords available here:

Class time is spent doing drills,  one-on-one sparring, group sparring, melee,  dagger activities,  grappling, as well as other drills and practice techniques.

The Historical European Martial Arts are a unique system of self-defense skills, but as with any martial art, they may be dangerous. Participants are encouraged to wear protective equipment. That being said, metal armor is not allowed in regular class activities. For all members, mouth guards and gloves are required. Athletic cups are required for all male participants, this gear is highly recommended for investigators as well. Lacrosse gloves are highly encouraged to prevent injury from hits to the hands, wrists, and fingers while also allowing sufficient flexibility. Fencing masks are also highly encouraged and can replace a mouth guard. Full protective gear is required for more advanced training and further education. In order to participate in class activities participants must be at least 12 years of age.

The first 4 classes are free so everyone is welcome to try it out before they join! After which, dues are $20 a month. November 4th we will move class from Liberty Park to Crossfit Spearhead 4540 S Highland Dr, Holladay, UT 84117 To accommodate the move dues will move to $30 a month.
