JHMS teaches historical European martial arts in Jyväskylä. The arts are reconstructed according to available period sources – usually manuscripts or printed books (fechtbuchs). Our main focus is in the late middle-ages fighting arts of Italy, armizare. These arts include e.g. the use of longsword, dagger, spear and pollax.

In addition we run classes on the use of late iron age (”viking”) weapons and instinct archery.
