HEFT members are dedicated to teaching, learning and practicing documentable fighting styles of Medieval Europe.

HEFT is an affiliated and recognised Sporting Club of the Tasmanian University Union/University of Tasmania. Membership of HEFT is required, compliance with UTAS society and club regulations is compulsory.

Students learn to use historical fighting techniques and weapons of the age and employ them in non-contact and contact drills and sparring.

HEFT classes are currently held in Hobart on Mondays and Fridays 1800-1930 at the UTAS University Gym. Travelling HEMA affiliated members are always welcome to drop by/participate. General public inquiry is also welcome but it would be preferred that contact be made first as we are running a formal class structure similar to what one would encounter in a dojo.
