Registration for the Steve Hodgson Memorial Tournament 2019 is now open and you can register here:

REGISTER NOW

The Steve Hodgson Memorial Tournament is the biggest HEMA competition in NZ.  We are expecting more than 45 competitors from all around NZ this year.

This tournament is geared to put fun, participation, and demonstration of skills ahead of winning at all costs. Novice players are encouraged to enter to improve their skills fighting under pressure and to encounter fighting styles from multiple clubs. Experienced players are encouraged to demonstrate their skills and technique while resisting the urge to ‘play it safe’.

NY Times on HEMA

The New York times has noticed the rise of HEMA worldwide and have written an article on it.  The article also comes with this video clip.

It’s good to see mainstream coverage of HEMA. Also of note is Cédric Hauteville is in the process of creating a documentary on Historic Fencing as part of a Kickstarter project. It should be ready next year sometime. Check out the introductory video.
