LFHC is run by its members and all members have a say in how the club is run, according to our constitution.

We welcome anyone from all walks of life, and every session we strive towards creating and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment where everyone should feel free to be themselves. We welcome people from all/no genders, races, ethnicities, body types, sexual orientations, and social backgrounds, and we will do our best to create an accessible environment for any disabled person. You also shouldn’t be concerned about your fitness level or prior martial arts background, as most exercises can be performed slowly or at speed depending on your comfort zone.

You do not have to be a member to come to our regular classes, but it is strongly encouraged as only members are able to be assessed for sparring.

Cost: £25 per year

Benefits: Insurance with IMASA, AGM voting rights, eligible to be assessed for sparring, discount at the HEMA shop

To become a member: give your name, date of birth and membership fee to the club officer at any of our regular sessions.
