My search for HEMA near Boston has turned up this: Fundamentals of Fiore. 

I think I will go and see what's up. +Michael Moceri  if this is still relevant to your interests.
(a set of 4 Saturday classes) Always wanted to learn how they really fought in the middle ages? Forget any ideas about crude battering on armour; the successful warrior strikes to the gaps and the openings of his or her opponent's attacks, and supplements this with disarms, throws, and other techniques which secure the advantage over larger or stronger attackers.

I maintain that Eddie was inspired by 'Kung Fury' and hacked too much time.

Alas, the terrible feeling of learning a game idea you had been working on has been beaten to market by a similar idea and said idea was very successful.

I liked it.  It had a better first season than a lot of stuff.

Does anyone know of a HEMA group that does longsword near Boston, MA? I've been looking but so far none of the websites of ones I've found are terribly helpful.

I've found Boston Armizare (http://www.meetup.com/BosArm/). I'm inquiring with the instructor of the Intermediate Longsword meet-up.
