    What organizations exist to preserve and train in the historical (ie not recreational sparring) sword training of medieval Europe?


    I found a few:
    Academy of European Medieval Martial Arts

    Pan-Historical European Martial Arts Society

    Organizations
    Schools

    Schola St. George, who focus on Fiore dei Liberi. Some good short videos there as well.

    I don't know if this group have been 'logged' in the fora anywhere previously but I found their explanatory pages of what Historical European Swordsmanship was about to be well written and very readable:

    Aye, their DVD's are quite informative too. Nothing too flash and lots of repetitions so you can get the feel for what's going on in a technique.
