Welcome to ARMA Denton

Welcome to the official site of ARMA Denton, the local study group for the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts representing Denton, Texas. The ARMA is an educational non-profit organization dedicated to the study and practice of historical fencing and the exploration and promotion of our Western martial heritage. We strive to revitalize a martial tradition whose methods and techniques have been preserved almost exclusively in written records, illustrations, iconography, and surviving artifacts. Our focus is on the interpretation and legitimate reconstruction of medieval and Renaissance combat systems as a modern discipline. Our program allows people to freely and seriously practice this subject without the concerns of staged fighting and sporting play, or the distractions of role-playing and fantasy.


The Betty Foster Public Library in Ponder invited ARMA Denton member Lonnie to conduct an interactive eduational demonstration entitled "A Knight in Shining Armour" on 19 March 2019. The audience ranged from elementary students to adults. Lonnie wore his XVc Milanese export harness during the entire program. Guests were allowed to handle an assortment of reproduction weapons ranging from swords and daggers to warhammers and pollaxes as well as weapons of the noble hunt including crossbow, longbow, and spear. A small gallery of images taken during the event is included below.
