Welcome to Omaha KDF

Dedicated to the study and practice of Historical European Martial arts

Who we are

Omaha Kunst des Fetchtens (OKDF) is based in Omaha, Nebraska and focuses on study and practice of the Longsword, using the techniques from the translated manuscripts of German Swordmaster Johannes Liechtenauer. Training also includes studies of saber, dagger, rapier, spear, and wrestling techniques. 

hema classes

The longsword classes from OKDF are set in a supportive club environment that encourages physical fitness through historical fencing techniques. Students learn at their own pace in a welcoming, structured group setting. The club meets twice per week in Benson Nebraska.
