Biography:                                                                                                                                                              Jeremy Oneail is the founder and lead instructor ( Maestro in Italian) of the Academy. He has been participating in medieval sword fighting groups since 1991. After attending seminars on medieval martial arts by Bob Charron and Fred Pireaux, Jeremy used his knowledge and background to start to develop the curriculum on the Academy. The school officially opened in 2003. The school and curriculum have both evolved as more and more becomes apparent in the study of the art. Now with the help and guidance of people like Nikki Fourtzialas Oneail, Jeffery Perry and Michael Gregory the art is becoming a fully well rounded and very dangerous art of war.
