University of Abertay - RMAS

RMAS is a student society at the University of Abertay. The group offers historical fencing tuition, as well as a strong personal development programme. This society is regularly one of the largest clubs in the Academy, so there are always lots of opportunities to meet new people and make new friends!

Day and Time:

The society meets every Wednesday evening during term time in Room 1007 of Abertay University, between 6pm and 8:30pm.


Abertay University
Bell Street

Disciplines Studied:

This club trains primarily German longsword, but also studies a range of other disciplines including medieval Italian dagger, renaissance English sword and buckler, and medieval German wrestling.

Club Membership and Fees:

Anyone over the age of 18 may become a member of this club. We welcome both men and women. You can join this club even if you are not a university student, although places may be limited.

The price of club membership is £25 per year, consisting of two costs:
- £10 club membership fee;
- £15 AHA subscription (this fee does not apply if you already have a valid and up-to-date AHA subscription).

Weekly meetings are free of charge.

Club Uniform (and what to bring with you):

The club uniform consists of loose-fitting black trousers (not denim) and a plain white t-shirt. White t-shirts with AHA logos are allowed (and are available to purchase here through Corsair's Wares) but otherwise the only t-shirts allowed are plain white t-shirts with no logos, colours, images or text upon them.

Indoor shoes are required. Outdoor boots, formal shoes, and other footwear that is likely to leave marks on the hall floor should not be worn. Please note that footwear IS required and that training barefoot (or just in socks) is not an option.

Additionally, you should bring with you a bottle of water and a pair of thin gloves (to help protect your hand and wrist from chafing on the sword). If you suffer from asthma then you should bring your inhaler with you; if you need other medication then you should contact the club instructor through the contact form below to see if there may be any problems.
