“Decided to try fencing and picked this school because it was local. I am very glad I did, Vlad and Nick are excellent instructors who are passionate and truly want to see you improve. I highly recommend this to anybody who is interested as a beginner.”

Andrew H.

“Vlad and Nick are fantastic instructors, I had an amazing first experience here visiting from a different HEMA club and I will absolutely be coming back! Their longsword class was well structured, historically informed and still a great workout. I would absolutely recommend Signum Corvus to anyone interested in trying out HEMA!”

“It’s a new year and I just wanted to start something new. I came across Singum Corvus school of arms which seemed like a great place. Vlad and Nick radiate their passion in a way that inspires interaction. A few weeks in and I became obsessed with long sword practice, history and discipline. Thank you Vlad and Nick for sharing your knowledge and experience in a safe, enjoyable and respectful environment.”
