Aaron Shober

Aaron Shober is the owner and lead instructor at Sword Carolina in Fountain Inn, SC.  He discovered HEMA online while looking for ideas for his son’s knight-themed birthday party.  The new hobby quickly became an obsession, then a profession.  Sword Carolina opened as a full-time HEMA school in 2012, focusing on Liechtenauer’s Kunst des Fechtens with the Longsword.  Classes are offered five days a week to youth and adults.  They regularly hold demonstrations, lectures, and workshops; produce weekly videos to their YouTube channel; and recently held their first HEMA event: Study in Steel 2015.  Aaron Shober is a lifetime member of the HEMA Alliance, which Sword Carolina supports as well.
