Fechtschule America 2013

HEMAC Dijon 2013 open longsword tournament, final fight:
NordFecht Gdansk 2013 longsword finals:
Swedish Swordfish is the ‘best of the best’ type of the tournament that simply gathers best fighters from all over the world to compete in various categories. Just for the reference here are the 2013 swordfish finals here:
and while we’re at this I’d like to remind every undecided person that our longsword course will start on the 29th of September!
