Michael Kirkley has been studying martial arts for most of his adult life. At first it started with Kempo, Aikido, Kung fu and Krav Maga. In the early 2000s he started taking his first HEMA (Historic European Martial Artes) classes. From that stemmed wrestling, knife fighting, sword fighting, axes and pugilism. One thing he will always mention is that all of these artes flow together and all follow similar rules, just adjusted for the styles timing and distance. You can reach Michael at mikesama@gmail.com
