Jeff Greenwood has fostered a lifelong interest in swords and armour that led him to studying Historical European Martial arts. He began practicing HEMA at the Armoured Company of the Sword in 2004, coming from a background of kenjutsu and jiujitsu.

In 2014 he became OHFS’s chief instructor and has been guiding the group ever since. Though the curriculum Jeff and Dave created takes a holistic approach to the German Longsword tradition of Liechtenauer, his primary influences are Talhoffer’s 1467 Württemberg treatise, and Sigmund Ringeck’s gloss of The Zettel.
