Kunstbruder, the Brotherhood of the Art, is a Boston area group that trains Medieval Martial Arts. The focus is the Longsword tradition of Johannes Lichtenauer. Kunstbruder also works to reconstruct the Pollaxe, Dagger and Grappling arts. Training includes Free Play, Drill and Test Cutting; Together these elements help to understand and recreate combat on the battlefield, the list and personal defense.


Swords of Chivalry is our new Youth program for Middle and High School aged sword enthusiasts.
