Are Muay Thai or Brazilian jiu-jitsu just too ordinary for your martial tastes? Consider how badass knights used to impale each other with swords and spears. Toronto's AEMMA (Academy of European Medieval Martial Arts, 927 Dupont, 416-892-9529, aemma.org) is a one-of-a-kind school that teaches authentic medieval combat styles (both armed and hand-to-hand). It even relies on medieval rules for its tournaments at the ROM. If you're a history buff with an attitude, this could be the greatest thing ever.
