“Our primary aim is to inspire an appreciation and, above all, an enjoyment of this dynamic and fulfilling discipline that is not only a science and an art, but also a contemporary martial system that is equal to any in the world.

Hello and Welcome
Founded in 1997, the Sussex Sword Academy (SSA) was established to study, practice, promote and revive the martial arts that were developed in European combat.
We began life as the Sussex Rapier School in Brighton in 1997, focussing primarily on Italian rapier. As our repertoire increased we decided to rename ourselves to the Sussex Sword Academy (SSA) to better reflect the range of weapons that we offered.
We meet each week at The Manor Sports and Activities Centre in Kemptown
8pm to 10pm
Longsword and Unarmed
7.30pm to 10pm
Broadsword and Rapier
