Founded in 2015, Columbus Saber Academy offers weekly instructor lead training in Longsword, Military Sabre, Rapier, and LED Saber, as well as our Longsword Yoga, Self Defense, and Conditioning programs.

CSA's mission is to provide an open, welcoming, and inclusive environment that empowers personal growth and development and encourages community interaction through swordsmanship

Our classes and workshops are structured to develop ability, endurance, confidence, and sportsmanship through individual, and partner drills in foundational and advanced martial techniques that focus on proper structure, mechanics, tempo, measure, and movement.

Beginners are welcome in all classes, and we encourage you to try a variety of classes to find those that fit you best. Click on the Schedulicity link above, or the "Sign-up / Register" menu item to join us in a class.

For unlimited classes, student fees are $65 per month for an individual or $110 per month for a family.

CSA is a member organization in the Ohio River Valley HEMA League (ORVL) and our students and instructors are active in the HEMA community, participating in tournaments and workshops around the country throughout the year, and are proud to host our annual Crossroads tournament series.

Our goal for the Crossroads Tournament Series is to present experiences (and awards) that support personal growth of fighters as well as the growth of our HEMA community. As did in 2021, CSA will pay the winner's registration fees for their next ORVL tournament event!

Our Longsword tournament will be held on Saturday April 23rd, and our Steel Sabre tournament is in the calendar for Saturday July 9th.

Tournament registration is $40, and our goal is to complete the event by 6:00pm to allow plenty of time for community interaction. Click the Crossroads link above to register.

Good luck to all our competitors!
