Our story

We are Arming Guild, the company behind the Rearguard mask, the next gen head protection for martial combat sports with an emphasis on HEMA, historical European martial arts. We are devoted to bringing safety to martial artists from head to toe.

Two years ago we’ve started working on this project with various ups and downs. With constant work and help from the HEMA community we managed to upgrade the product with new features. In 2019. our successful story attracted investors which will drive the business into a new age of affordable safety!



Our mission is to spread the love of historical fencing to as many people as possible providing affordable and quality safety equipment. Our message is one of inclusiveness. Every fighter should feel welcome, comfortable and safe.

We are strongly opposed to any kind of hate speech or behavior
