New students graduated to Scholars!

Hello!

I’d like to officially congratulate our new Blademasters Scholars on passing the exam and successfully completing 10 Weeks German Longsword Course!

In order to pass the exam all students had to design and present their own 30 seconds longsword flourish which you can now admire via playlist below 🙂

Also, as additional bonus you can see some of their very first bouts here:

One more time, congratulations to all and i’ll see you at the training!

Belfast Bladeworks 2017 Review

Hello All,

Belfast Bladeworks 2017 Open Steel Tournament and the Third Leg of the Irish Historical Fencing League (IHFL) is behind us now! Truly great event flawlessly ran by Medieval Combat Group. I’m proud to say that Blademasters have won first two places of the event: Michael Nolan – Gold and myself (his instructor) Andrzej Rozycki – Silver while Adrian Szlapka from Leitrim Longswords got Bronze.  Congratulations to all!

The overall fencing level was excellent (fantastic improvement from Leitrim Longswords, well done guys!) and I was also happy to see lots of new promising faces on the tournament scene this year, especially in Belfast!  HEMA is growing strong in Ireland so let’s keep it going!

While we prepare for the final tournament of this year’s League in Galway let’s take a look back at the final fight of the event (video courtesy of Adam Keys, thanks!):
