HEMA Tournaments Don’t Look Like Historical Swordsmanship, So Let’s Fix That!

This class will make use of the instructor’s 15 years of tournament fighting experience and 20 years working with historical treatises to help students understand how they can move beyond standing in guards and work to use complete historical combat systems to achieve an expression of a real historical art, using a simulated historical weapon in Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) tournaments. Mental approach, practice methods and scientific principles will be discussed, and an extensive Q&A session for students will be included.

Required Equipment: Students should bring a training longsword and the will to learn.

Skill Level: Beginner to Advanced
