It was an intense tournament with an experimental ruleset (highly weighed targets and the ability to chain attacks) which forced us to adapt our tactics during the fight but it was well worth it as four Blademasters went into the eliminations bringing home one Bronze medal won by Brian in an exciting match against Joe!
4th and the last Leg of the IHFL will take place in Galway on the 17th of November 2018!
