School of Two Swords – Los Angeles Founder and Head Instructor Steven Huff has had a fascination with weapons and martial arts since childhood and has been practicing various forms and styles for over 30 years. As a kid he had a love of fantasy and sci fi (D&D and Star Wars in particular) and the many weapons within those worlds that fueled his desire to learn how to swordfight, and started him on the martial path. He also developed longtime interest in history (particularly martial culture) and has combined both passions in the researching and revitalizing of lesser known martial and combative systems, focusing primarily on fighting systems of Western cultures such as German and Italian medieval and Renaissance fighting systems, early Native American fighting arts, and early gladiatorial and Viking fighting arts among others. His martial journey eventually led him to train and mentor under renowned martial artist and martial historian Colonel Dwight McLemore, founder of the School of Two Swords and the McLemore Fighting System. After years of study Steve was awarded a Full Instructor Certification and school charter, allowing him to teach the full McLemore System.
Having relocated to Los Angeles, Steve currently teaches small groups and private sessions on a variety of topics of both Eastern and Western martial arts and works as a Fight Choreographer/Performer in the entertainment industry through his company Creative Combat.
