Auckland Sword and Shield are bringing together two awesome HEMA Tournaments for the weekend of the 18th and 19th of August.
It will consist of the Memorial Tournament on Saturday and follows more or less the same format as last year. On the Sunday we have a new tournament called “The Provocation” where we invite champions from HEMA clubs across NZ and put them in a ring to decide which club trains the best HEMA practitioners in NZ.
Cedric Hauteville recently completed a feature length documentary on the world of Historical European Martial Arts. If you want to know about the many different facets of HEMA then you’ll want to watch this video…
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.
