Ken Harding

Ken Harding has been a professional martial arts instructor for more than 30 years, and has taught thousands of students. Having been trained in Japan in the use of swords, pole arms, daggers and other weapons, he holds a high level black belt in Japanese martial arts. In 2010 however, his focus shifted entirely to HEMA, and in particular the Bolognese tradition. Currently he is the full-time instructor at the St. Louis School of Arms, where he devotes his time exclusively to the study, revival and popularization of all aspects of the Bolognese martial arts.
