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. In addition to those  we teach techniques to fight against all of these.  All weapons used in class are made of synthetic plastic, or with the correct protective equipment,  steel. Most of the swords we use come from Purpleheart Armoury, or South Coast Swords and are available here:

Class time is spent doing warm ups, technique drills, one-on-one sparring,  as well as other drills and practice techniques depending on the week. 

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 without prior approval. Athletic cups are required for all male participants when doing sparring activities, and this gear is highly recommended for those investigating class as well. Fencing masks are highly encouraged and can be borrowed from class.  Full protective gear is required for more advanced training and further education but can be borrowed until the point that you are sure that you want to purchase it for yourself.  In order to participate in class activities students must be at least 12 years of age.

Our beginners class is taught from 12-1:30 every Saturday and costs $30 for the 4 weeks but you can begin at any point in the cycle. Classes are held at Spearhead fitness 4540 S Highland Dr, Holladay, UT 84117 dues are $30 a month.
