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.

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

2017-12-09 01:09:10 UTC  

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

2017-12-09 01:44:44 UTC  

Go fight for M1!!

2017-12-09 02:02:12 UTC  

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

2017-12-09 05:16:34 UTC  

@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

2017-12-10 19:26:39 UTC  

Really cool concept but those guys lacked any form of drill

2017-12-10 22:19:25 UTC  

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

2017-12-10 23:36:37 UTC  

Hmm.

2017-12-10 23:36:45 UTC  

I know Swordfish does a tournament

2017-12-10 23:36:56 UTC  

League? I dunno

2017-12-11 02:35:50 UTC  

Pretty sure that's Hema

2017-12-11 02:43:50 UTC  

@Bismarck- TX what you mean?

2017-12-11 02:44:22 UTC  

@Prestor John yeah that would be hema
