Olivier Dupuis started swordfighting in 1992 in a re-enactment group, and never stopped teaching other people doing that since 1994. In parallel, he discovered French stick fencing in 1996, became federal teacher in 2000 and obtained in 2004 a professional diploma, something equivalent to a fencing master grade. He discovered HEMA in 1999 but only began to study them seriously since 2001.

Olivier Dupuis is also a member of HEMAC, the Historical European Martial Arts Coalition, and has transcribed a few manuscripts, mostly French but also German and made them publicly available. He also published some papers dedicated to the practise of fencing during the Medieval and Renaissance times in France and Germany.
