Arming Guild has developed a uniquely strong and lightweight helmet for the amateur sword-sport industry tackling a niche market with this type of exceptional product.

The helmet, Rearguard, is a patented mask designed for combat sports that require head protection from training weapons. With more than 10 years of experience in the field of getting hit by blunt objects, they have carefully studied the designs, physics and comfort to create a mask that is light, durable, safe and budget friendly.

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

We love bold founders and we provide “Capital for the Bold”. Get it?
