Important Notice about HEMA-1 Training

To our current and future HEMA-ists;

HEMA-1 training will now be run as block courses, with set start dates. Each block will run for eight weeks, with the intention to hold gradings on the ninth week, should the students be prepared. Usually the next HEMA-1 block will begin on the tenth week.

The main reason for this, is to give HEMA-1 students the attention, learning and progress they deserve, and helps the instructors plan and deliver more structured lessons (which helps the students leanr and progress better too!).

The next HEMA-1 block will begin 17th March. Check out the event on Facebook, or inquire through the Auckland Sword and Shield website.

If you have any questions about this new style of training, do not hesitate to speak to the instructors in person, or inquire directly through the Auckland Sword and Shield website.

Best regards, Your Committee.
