    SCA-Rapier

    lists.ansteorra.org/listinfo.cgi/sca-rapier-ansteorra.org/

    An SCA wide list for the discussion of fencing. Volume can be quite high, and therefore digest mode is recommended.

    Classical Fencing

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/classicalfencing/

    A once busy group that is now virtually silent. This group was the main discussion place for the early movers and shakers of the HEMA movement. The message archive is a valuable resource for those wishing to develop their fencing.

    Livre de Combat

    groups.yahoo.com/group/livre_de_combat/

    A once busy group that is now virtually silent. This group was the main discussion place for the people involved with getting C&T fencing established in the SCA. The message archive is a valuable resource for those wishing to develop period style or C&T combat.

    Forums

    Swordforum - Historical European Swordsmanship

    forums.swordforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15

    This is a sub-forum of the main forum hosted by Sword Forums International. Most of the top International fencing researchers and interpreters hang out here. Excellent resource that is highly recommended for anyone interested in historical fencing.

    Order of the Seven Hearts

    salvatorfabris.com/forum/index.php

    The Order of the Seven Hearts is led by Tom Leoni, one of the top International interpreters of Italian fencing manuals. These forums are dedicated to the Italian fencing systems, nd are an excellent resource for Italian rapier and Bolognese swordsmanship.

    Australian Historical Fencing Association

    forums.swordplay.org.au/

    The forum for the Australian HEMA movement. Very quiet but useful for seeking out a local HEMA group for ideas and training cross-fertilisation.

    HEMA Alliance forum

    hemaalliance.com/discussion/index.php

    The US equivalent of above, however much more active. Useful discussion which may help develop your own ideas.

    Armourachive

    forums.armourarchive.org/phpBB3/index.php

    More focussed on equipment, but exceptionally inspirational for raising the level of your kit. Contains a sub-forum on weapons use, however tends to have an armoured combat / rattan focus.
