Waterford Longsword Workshop 2019 Review

Last Sunday 19th of May 2019 Cork Blademasters crew traveled to beautiful city of Waterford to teach a 5 hours long HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) Workshop on medieval German Longsword!

We had a small but very dedicated and enthusiastic group that we put through 4 hours of intense training only to test out their newly gained knowledge in sparring environment at the end of the class.

Fight like a Knight in Waterford!

Join us on the 25th of March 2018 at Waterford Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre and learn to fight like XV Century Knight in an intense 6 hours long medieval longsword workshop!

Waterford Longsword Workshop is an annual event held in a beautiful city of Waterford that aims to introduce HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) and the art of swordfighting to the general population.

In this workshop you will learn the basics of medieval fencing: movements, guards & basic combat strategies that you will be able to put to the test at the end of the workshop in a realistic combat sparring experience!

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!
