The Medieval European Martial Arts Guild, or MEMAG, is a Historical European Martial Arts school founded in 2006, with branches in Luray - Virginia, Salisbury - Maryland, and Maple Shade - New Jersey, as of 2016.

About

The MEMAG is an organization consisting of three historical fencing schools which instruct students in the fighting system developed by the 14th century German fencing Grandmaster, Johannes Liechtenauer. We place a high emphasis on the study of historical texts and the practice of techniques contained therein as the foundation of our training. It is our goal to educate our students and the public about HEMA, as well as train our students to be efficient Martial Artists of which Meister Liechtenauer himself would have been proud.
