Arisia has a labyrinth and hands-on weapons demonstrations to move your body as well as your mind. Check the online schedule or your pocket program for details in addition to the individual schedules below.
We offer Demonstrations and hands-on classes in a variety of different forms, given by local and out-of-state weapons groups. For example, CHEMAS Group, The Cambridge Historical European Martial Arts Studies Group, translates and interprets extant combat treatises from the Medieval, Renaissance, and early modern eras. Its members occasionally present demonstrations based on their work.
