Waterford Longsword Workshops 2017!

Hello All,

We’re happy to announce that due to popular demand we’re back with  our Waterford Longsword Workshops that will take place on Sunday 19th of March 2017 @ Waterford Crystals Sports and Leisure Centre!

These workshops are aimed at beginners so everyone is welcome to try! We will cover all basic principles of edged based weapon fighting: footwork, using tempo and measure, basic guards and cuts as well as basic attack/defence strategies – we’ll even have some time at the end for a free sparring!

As there seems to be an increasing demand for HEMA in Waterford area this workshop will serve as a probe for launching a new regular training group at Waterford area!

Blademasters League: Score Table – Feb 2017

Hello All,

Here are the Blademasters League 2017 results so far:

Blademasters League Score Table – STEEL
Name no of Bouts Wins Losses Draws Points total
Brian M 4 4 0 0 44
Michael N 4 2 2 0 41
Rob L 4 2 2 0 30
Joe H 4 2 2 0 29
Andrzej R 4 0 4 0 25

 

Great start for Brian who won all the matches! Tournament season is mere two months away so we need to start practice now!

As for our own league i’m making a small adjustment in the scoring system to match the Blademasters Cup rules: we’re adding +1 bonus point for control as well as extending the deep target areas.
