The International Armizare Society (hereafter referred to as IAS or “the Society”) is an historical and chivalric European martial arts confraternal association dedicated to the study, preservation, teaching and transmission of the the Art of Arms (l’arte dell’armizare)  of the dei Liberi Tradition.

The Society’s overarching goal is the revival of this tradition and its continued transmission, as stated in its mission and objectives. The organisation has also put forth formal testing requirements and will institute mechanisms for forming on-going testing and governing bodies.

We seek high standards of academic and martial quality to create a transparent and ethical community of professional teachers, for the protection and transmission of armizare; our tools are research, experimentation, training, education, sharing and personal responsibility.
