We have a Hema channel?? YES. Hema is OP boys

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-08 19:12:01

Might be doxing myself, but Hema is worth it. Much better than sportsball.


FivePointPalm 2017-12-08 19:12:47

Please explain what Hema is

Deleted User 2017-12-08 19:13:01

Historical European Martial Arts

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-08 19:15:32

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.

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-08 19:31:29

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.

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-08 19:42:09

Another good video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4k-vjdeZO4 of 1v1 techniques.

I have a full BOTN rig being made @The Eternal Anglo

The Eternal Anglo 2017-12-09 01:09:10

Beautiful helmet! Hopefully with money being saved up I can buy a nice heavy armour suit @Deleted User

Praetorian 2017-12-09 01:44:44

Go fight for M1!!

Deleted User 2017-12-09 02:02:12

@The Eternal Anglo buy pre-made if you can buying custom from armorers takes forever for it to get built

Deleted User 2017-12-09 05:16:34

@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

Bismarck- TX 2017-12-10 19:26:39

Really cool concept but those guys lacked any form of drill

Prestor John 2017-12-10 22:19:25

What is the sport/league that is more like fencing but with medieval swords?

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-10 23:36:37


StrawberryArmada 2017-12-10 23:36:45

I know Swordfish does a tournament

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-10 23:36:56

League? I dunno

Deleted User 2017-12-11 02:35:50

Pretty sure that's Hema

Deleted User 2017-12-11 02:43:50

@Bismarck- TX what you mean?

Deleted User 2017-12-11 02:44:22

@Prestor John yeah that would be hema

Deleted User 2017-12-14 14:39:06

Fellas check this out... maybe perhaps slightly more practical?..... https://youtu.be/6FChDBwYsg8

Full contact stick stick fighting

Deleted User 2017-12-14 17:33:54

The irish used to have a stick fighting martial art, mostly because they don't have much iron on the island.

Deleted User 2017-12-14 17:48:39

`Originally known as the Irish: bata, or stick, the name shillelagh is an Anglophone corruption (phonological adaptation) of the Irish sail Γ©ille and appears to have been associated with the name of the village and barony of Shillelagh, County Wicklow.[2][3] The shillelagh was originally used for settling disputes in a gentlemanly manner β€” 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.[4]`

Irish HEMA.

Deleted User 2017-12-14 23:39:20

Stick fighting with Hema techniques are superior

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-15 00:38:04

"Practical" If you don't carry a side-sword on you at all times you aren't white

Praetorian 2017-12-15 01:04:58

I like the one with the morning star. Fucking sick.

Deleted User 2017-12-15 04:03:09

@StrawberryArmada all techniques are interchangeable

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-18 02:19:44


StrawberryArmada 2017-12-18 02:20:14

Wear your armor 24/7 so you can properly adjust.

That photo is fake.

Deleted User 2017-12-19 01:53:04

Women don't dress like that anymore, silly

Hyphenstein 2017-12-28 06:51:30

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.

this_that5553 2017-12-29 04:38:42

In one of those videos, a guy was swinging a fuggin hammer. Take one to the head and you'll die bro

Deleted User 2017-12-29 05:08:53

I only spar with hammers and heavy maces

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-29 05:17:53

Decent stuff from lots of category

StrawberryArmada 2017-12-29 05:19:19

These guys make great rapiers

Bismarck- TX 2018-01-03 00:03:19

@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

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-14 17:04:06

This wiki collects primary source materials on European martial arts

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-14 17:08:27

Skip to 2:00 to see some awesome techniques

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-14 17:17:35

Rapier and dagger is cooler but longsword is nice too

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 02:58:34

If anyone is interested in HEMA and would like to see it first hand you can find an event near you here.

Deleted User 2018-01-29 15:36:32

@StrawberryArmada do they have a search feature or do I just scroll?

StrawberryArmada 2018-01-29 15:55:14

I don't believe they do, but you can use the "find on page" function to lookup your area

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.

Deleted User 2018-02-07 22:59:11

Thought you guys might be able to help

Something similar to this.

StrawberryArmada 2018-02-09 22:41:12

Honestly I've only ever dealt in useable swords

StrawberryArmada 2018-02-09 22:41:34

I can probably check if some armories I know of do props

Warren H 2018-02-10 00:50:30

That'd be awesome thanks @StrawberryArmada

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-11 04:43:39

If you live in Wyoming

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-11 04:43:56

There's a very important upcoming bareknuckle event

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-11 04:44:32

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-11 04:53:19

Pugilism is the superior martial art

Any fencing nibbas in here?

Yeah, I want to get into it, but it's expensive.

bspon002 2018-05-21 02:40:00

Not as much as I've done other things but I've dabbled in fencing

Deleted User 2018-05-21 02:40:21

I know you a knightly nibba

bspon002 2018-05-21 02:40:34

If you have a local SCA chapter they do fencing exceptionally well

Deleted User 2018-05-21 02:40:53

I know SCA is doing an event in Denver on October 12th

bspon002 2018-05-21 02:41:04

But beware they will try to get you to lace up lol

bspon002 2018-05-21 02:41:43

@Deleted User good place to gather techniques. It's a good place to learn fencing in general

bspon002 2018-05-21 02:42:44

@Deleted User try kult of athena they have alot of stuff for a variety of needs relatively cheap

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-25 18:06:35

Avoid Cold Steel products

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-25 18:06:40

not very good

Deleted User 2018-05-28 01:43:46

@StrawberryArmada Nothing wrong with Cold Steel. Most of their stuff is pretty good.

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-28 01:44:01

Ehhh. For fencing

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-28 01:44:06

I wouldn't trust em

Deleted User 2018-05-28 01:46:06

They don't make any fencing stuff. Most of their actual knives and other blades are pretty good.

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-28 02:18:01

I dunno. I've only ever seen their swords

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-28 02:18:16

It's a lot easier to mess up a sword

StrawberryArmada 2018-05-28 02:20:16

Their sword handles are notoriously flimsy
