Valor Starts Here

The Swordsman Guild of Kansas City started in 2007 as a group of like-minded individuals who wanted to study the martial arts of Europe as they were practiced during the Middle Ages. While our instructors have been involved in a variety of European martial arts for years, many of our members are new to the sport. Our classes are fun, safe, and and good exercise.

What you get from joining the guild:
