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.


It may be too early to declare that fall has finally arrived in Texas, but the mercury has been going noticeably down making it perfect weather for sparring. Even in Texas, social distancing continues to be the new norm. However, according to the Governor Abbott's executive order, masks are not required while participating in outdoor physical activities if proper distance is maintained. What better way to maintain proper distance than at the end of a long sword?

The Denton study group continues to meet every Sunday at South Lakes Park for weekly practice sessions. A small gallery of photos from the month of September is included below.
