The Australian College of Arms is a martial arts organisation that teaches western swordsmanship. We offer instruction primarily in Sword & Dagger with a secondary focus on Longsword. These sword systems are taught as part of a structured syllabus that includes use of companion weapons, dagger work and unarmed techniques.

Scott McDonald - Chief Instructor - Australian College of ArmsWe aim to create a modern approach to western swordplay by utilising period resources, high quality reproduction swords and modern training techniques to establish a martial culture that allows a wide variety of student needs to be met.

The ACA aims to create an environment that promotes general fitness, co-ordination, self defence skills and an appreciation of the development of western martial arts that promotes engagement with other swordplay organisations.

We invite you to discover all that the ACA has to offer. Please contact us or visit one of our training sessions to see what we do.
