The Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild, Inc. was originally founded in Moraga, CA, in 1997 as the Twilight Knights Fencing Club. We changed our name and became the Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild in 1998. In 2014, the Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild, Inc. became incorporated in the state of California officially creating the Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild, Inc. We are an active working performance guild whose mission is the recreation, reenactment, study and practice of 16th Century European fighting arts as well as the education of the public of the same arts so that we may pass on the skills and knowledge to future generations.

The Twilight Knights Renaissance Guild, Inc. has performed at a variety of shows and events around California for more than a decade. If you are curious about how to arrange a performance with us please contact either Benjamin Hsu or John Proko via email.
