USM Blade Society

The USM Blade Society offers instruction in forms of historical rapier combat that are very similar to those used in SCA combat (plus instruction in modern sport fencing).  The Blade Society provides access to a number of skilled and experienced instructors (including SCA-affiliated instructors such as Robert Tupper) who teach men and women historical rapier style as described by renaissance fencing masters such as Silver, DiGrassi, Agrippa, and others.

USM Blade Society practice for period rapier combat is open to the community, and takes place every Tuesday night from 6-9 pm in the Sullivan Gym at the University of Southern Maine’s Portland Campus.
