Welcome in 2018!

Happy New Year 2018!

This year Cork Blademasters will offer plenty of activities for everyone!

  • In January we will launch Open Days – free longsword fencing classes for everyone who would like to try out medieval swordfighting! Check it out!
  • Also from January we’ll start our main recruitment event: 10 weeks long German Longsword Courses that will run throughout the year on Mondays 7PM @ Mahon Community Centre!
  • We’ll have new workshops in 2018 for Waterford and Limerick!
  • There’s even more to come: new training classes for our members, Longsword and Sabre Seminars & Workshops, Blademasters Cup 2018 – Open Steel Longsword Tournament and the first leg of the IHFL (Irish Historical Fencing League) as well as many other local and national events (Cork Martial Arts Expo, Cork City Military Show) in which we’ll take part showcasing Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA). Check out our 2018 Event Page for more info!

In the meantime however, i’d like to invite you all to take part in our Meyer Square Diagram Challenge on Facebook (starting on the 2nd of January 2018), it’s a simple cutting exercise that you can do at home with any tool that can simulate an edged weapon and train with us every day for a 30 days of this challenge! It is hard but it’s a great learning experience for everyone who might want to think of starting HEMA in 2018!

New group of students graduated to Scholars!


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!
