What happens at our Deed

Different from other H.E.M.A. events, this event combines living history immersion with historical teachings from nationally renown H.E.M.A. instructors.

The Medieval Swordsman Guild of Kansas City has hosted this yearly Deed of Arms since 2014.

While the main event and pageantry focused on Harnischfecten, there is also Blossfechten deeds including dagger, sword and buckler, and longsword.

We also added a “Squire’s List” for those who do not the have a full armored harness, run by our sister group, Broken Arm Academy of Swordsmanship of Manhattan KS.

There is something for everyone! Demo’s, discussions, archery and more!

To end the event each year, we hold “The Feast,” a multi-course medieval meal with everyone dressed in their finest!
