We’re happy to announce Martin Buckley to become club’s fifth Hema Ireland certified instructor!
Martin passed his practical assessment in January teaching a class in longsword (his weapon of choice) under the watchful eyes of Hema Ireland certified assessors which along with the documentation provided made him an official instructor certified by Hema Ireland.
Martin has been already helping out as an assistant instructor during many of our club’s recruitment courses and events as he’s already working through his apprenticeship term towards becoming a Blademaster Instructor
Martin’s main focus lies in German Longsword but he recently started working (with great deal of success) on military sabre as well. He participated in all of last year’s IHFL (Irish Historical Fencing League) longsword tournaments finishing the league on 7th place and i’m sure he aspires to go much higher this year!
We wish him good luck and all the best in the 2019 season!
