Welcome to ARMA Denton

Welcome to the official site of ARMA Denton, the local study group for the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts representing Denton, Texas. The ARMA is an educational non-profit organization dedicated to the study and practice of historical fencing and the exploration and promotion of our Western martial heritage. We strive to revitalize a martial tradition whose methods and techniques have been preserved almost exclusively in written records, illustrations, iconography, and surviving artifacts. Our focus is on the interpretation and legitimate reconstruction of medieval and Renaissance combat systems as a modern discipline. Our program allows people to freely and seriously practice this subject without the concerns of staged fighting and sporting play, or the distractions of role-playing and fantasy.

The George W. Hawkes Downtown Arlington Public Library hosted its 16th Annual Medieval Arts Festival. The library in conjunction of costumed members of the Society of Creative Anacronism provided stories, games and activities for children. Theatre Arlington, Scarborough Renaissance Festival and Medieval Times donated door prizes.

The ARMA Denton study group was on hand to answer visitor questions and conduct demonstrations of armored and unarmored longsword and pollaxe fighting. Representatives of the Armored Combat League set up a barrier and dueled with blunt steel weapons.
