Kinsale HEMA Tournament 2014

Hi All,

The time has finally come – Kinsale HEMA Tournament 2014 is about to launch!

Big thanks to Rob and West Cork Swordfighting Club for hosting it!

Tournament will take place @ Kinsale Community School:

1 Ballincubby Estate, Kinsale, Co. Cork

Coordinates: 51.704273, -8.529243 (put it in your GPS, google maps etc., )

Saturday: 11am – 6pm

Sunday: 10am – 5pm

Content: Longsword and Sword & Buckler Tournaments (both nylon and steel are planned depending on the number of attendees).

Please watch the even on facebook as Rob will be putting more information about the pools and such:


– Judges/Referees: please bring white t-shirt (club logos allowed of course :))

– Fighters: please print and fill out Entry Form and give it to Rob @ arrival, also there’s a 10 euro entry fee.

– Spectators: bring the cameras and record everything!!!

And most importantly: Let’s enjoy it! This is a training tournament that is designed for coaching and getting more sparring experience rather than winning! So there won’t be any official winner but we will have the chance to spar with lots of different people over 2 days. This will be a valuable lesson for everyone! Also, please make sure you have your own fights recorded and watched afterwards!
