We have a Hema channel?? YES. Hema is OP boys
Might be doxing myself, but Hema is worth it. Much better than sportsball.
Please explain what Hema is
Historical European Martial Arts
Basically the martial arts of European warfare, with swords/axes/halberds/etc. Unlike SCA, HEMA requires actual blunt weapons , and you will fight in actual armour.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYxQR5haqTs here is a 21v21 match, more of a strength battle. 1 vs 1 has much more tecnhique usually.
Another good video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4k-vjdeZO4 of 1v1 techniques.
My dream has been realised
Beautiful helmet! Hopefully with money being saved up I can buy a nice heavy armour suit @Deleted User
Go fight for M1!!
@The Eternal Anglo buy pre-made if you can buying custom from armorers takes forever for it to get built
@The Eternal Anglo sca does help with alot of things though I've seen alot of guys do Hema and sca there are tons of interchangeable skills
Really cool concept but those guys lacked any form of drill
What is the sport/league that is more like fencing but with medieval swords?
I know Swordfish does a tournament
League? I dunno
Pretty sure that's Hema
Fellas check this out... maybe perhaps slightly more practical?..... https://youtu.be/6FChDBwYsg8
Full contact stick stick fighting
The irish used to have a stick fighting martial art, mostly because they don't have much iron on the island.
`Originally known as the Irish: bata, or stick, the name shillelagh is an Anglophone corruption (phonological adaptation) of the Irish sail éille and appears to have been associated with the name of the village and barony of Shillelagh, County Wicklow. The shillelagh was originally used for settling disputes in a gentlemanly manner — like a duel with pistols or swords. Modern practitioners of bataireacht study the use of the shillelagh for self-defense and as a martial art. Of the practice, researcher J. W. Hurley writes:
Methods of shillelagh fighting have evolved over a period of thousands of years, from the spear, staff, axe and sword fighting of the Irish. There is some evidence which suggests that the use of Irish stick weapons may have evolved in a progression from a reliance on long spears and wattles, to shorter spears and wattles, to the shillelagh, alpeen, blackthorn (walking-stick) and short cudgel. By the 19th century Irish shillelagh-fighting had evolved into a practice which involved the use of three basic types of weapons, sticks which were long, medium or short in length.`
💯 🍀 🥔
Stick fighting with Hema techniques are superior
"Practical" If you don't carry a side-sword on you at all times you aren't white
I like the one with the morning star. Fucking sick.
Wear your armor 24/7 so you can properly adjust.
That photo is fake.
Women don't dress like that anymore, silly
Can anyone recommend a good website for purchasing well made sturdy renaissance era swords? I'm a fencer looking for a good side sword or rapier.
In one of those videos, a guy was swinging a fuggin hammer. Take one to the head and you'll die bro
I only spar with hammers and heavy maces
Decent stuff from lots of category
These guys make great rapiers
@Deleted User REALLY delayed response, but the combat looks really cool. There's just no military drill. They'd do much better with some line discipline
This wiki collects primary source materials on European martial arts
Skip to 2:00 to see some awesome techniques
Rapier and dagger is cooler but longsword is nice too
If anyone is interested in HEMA and would like to see it first hand you can find an event near you here.
@StrawberryArmada do they have a search feature or do I just scroll?
I don't believe they do, but you can use the "find on page" function to lookup your area
Please see the following post from @Warren H in <#388498895316975618>
Does anyone know of a brand or company that sells swords for movie props? Working on a project where I will need some and if possible I'd like for them to look real and not heavy.
Thought you guys might be able to help
Something similar to this.
Honestly I've only ever dealt in useable swords
I can probably check if some armories I know of do props
If you live in Wyoming
There's a very important upcoming bareknuckle event
Gillette, WY, on June 23, 2018
Pugilism is the superior martial art
Any fencing nibbas in here?
Fencing sounds cool, I’ve been meaning to try it
Yeah, I want to get into it, but it's expensive.
Not as much as I've done other things but I've dabbled in fencing
I know you a knightly nibba
If you have a local SCA chapter they do fencing exceptionally well
I know SCA is doing an event in Denver on October 12th
But beware they will try to get you to lace up lol
@Deleted User good place to gather techniques. It's a good place to learn fencing in general
@Deleted User try kult of athena they have alot of stuff for a variety of needs relatively cheap
Avoid Cold Steel products
not very good
@StrawberryArmada Nothing wrong with Cold Steel. Most of their stuff is pretty good.
Ehhh. For fencing
I wouldn't trust em
They don't make any fencing stuff. Most of their actual knives and other blades are pretty good.
I dunno. I've only ever seen their swords
It's a lot easier to mess up a sword
Their sword handles are notoriously flimsy
