Tempest 2017 Review

Hello All!

Last week our team has ventured into Feakle to take part into a 2 day event: ‘Tempest’ hosted by ISHC (Irish School of Historical Combat) from Galway. On the first day we participated in a 5 hours long Longsword workshop on Meyer Rose taught by Dave Rawlings from London Longsword  Academy and on the second day we had a Longsword Tournament. It was a fantastic event and we all enjoyed it thoroughly on both days! There were some additional attractions in the evening at the Pub but since I wasn’t there i won’t comment on that 🙂 We also had a quick test cutting session on Sunday which was another great add on to what has already been an action packed weekend! Congrats to ISHC for making a great event!

Also, congratulations to the winners of the tournament: Fionntan Murphy from ISHC took Gold, Konrad Drejarski from Sabre Tooth took silver and Brian Moloney from Cork Blademasters who took Bronze! Well done to all!

Here are the tournament videos:
