HEMAfag here. These guys are sparring, though it's not sport fencing. They're practicing a historical saber form, though I can't tell what school or tradition.

yo I'm having a hard time finding a HEMA place near me. Know any keywords besides HEMA that I could search? Or am I just unlucky and there's not one in the entirety of Australia lol

Check this out, it's a world wide club locator that sorts by tradition and continent.

www.communitywalk.com/user/view/81443

As for search terms, if you are looking for instruction faithful to historical sources, I might include (in no particular order): traditional sword fighting, swordplay, longsword, HROARR, johannes liechtenhauer, fiore de liberi, kunst des fechtens, historical European Martial Arts.

Somewhere in this thread, somebody suggested SCA or the society for creative anachronism. Take heed, the SCA is not necessarily historically accurate or a martial art, strictly speaking. It's more of a game. Not to demean the organization or its members. Case in point, a solid strike to the leg in a SCA fight would force the defender to fight on his knees, whereas the same strike would end a match in HEMA, because it is recognized that one would be too preoccupied with the loss of his or her leg(s) to continue fighting.

I actually managed to find a club near me by chance while looking at that SCA thing which to my embarrassment seems extremely fun but thanks I'll try to find one even closer to me

SCA, society for creative anachronism is pretty prevalent in some areas, try that.

I've been wanting to get into HEMA for a while now and I'm frustrated because my local chapter isn't really active

Yeah, it looks like fencing. I don't think they'd let the guy have a camera like that in a match anyway. But hey, thanks for clearing it up. I learned something.
