Waterford Longsword Workshops Tomorrow!


Tomorrow Cork Blademasters will visit beautiful Waterford City for a one day session of German Longsword!

So if you’re in the area join us in Waterford Crystals Sports and Leisure Centre from 11 am till 5 pm and see for yourself how the real sword fighting feels like!

Workshops are aimed at beginners so everyone is welcome to try! Just bring a comfortable sports clothes, indoor sport shoes, towel and lots of water 🙂

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 free sparring!

This HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) workshop is based on teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer via Gloss of Sigmund Schining ain Ringeck, 1470 AD and Nuremberg Hausbuch (MS 3227a), 1389 AD.

Cork Martial Arts Expo 2016 – Tournament Videos


Cork Martial Arts Expo 2016 is behind us now – time to look at the tournament videos!

After all the pools we have three winners: Myself, Frank and Michael – each with 69 points accumulated. Congratulations!

Please note though, the some people had to leave earlier (Christine, and then Frank and Ger later) so not everyone had the same amount of fights. Anyways, it’s not about the points but the quality of fights!

Big Thanks to Frank and Ger from Swords of The West (Galway) for coming over to spar with us! It’s always refreshing to fight someone outside of your own club 🙂

And even bigger thanks to all organizers of the Expo – it was a great event with tons of action packed entertainment! I really enjoyed being part of it so well done to all of you – organizers and all participants!

And Blademasters: as usual, watch your own fights please, twice at least 🙂

Enjoy 🙂
