Örebro Longsword Open 2015 – Tournament Videos

Hi,

Here’s the quick YouTube playlist with all the finals from the last part of the Nordic Historical Fencing League – Örebro Open 2015.  Ties Kool has become an official Champion of this year’s Nordic League after winning over Axel but check the bronze fight as well as there are some impressive moves to see (Thomas Nyzell had injured his right hand and Kristian agreed for both of them to fight left handed)!

Right now, it’s the Scandinavia that has the best fighters but this is changing quickly with each year as the new generations of fighters comes into play from all over Europe. Let’s wait and see what this year’s Swordfish will bring!

For now, enjoy the NHFL finals:
