For today we bring you a new HEMA demo video from La Sala delle Armi in Italy, the same club which you remember as the hosts of TaurHEMAchia in Turin, Italy — which you should check out, since they are hosting TaurHEMAchia 2014 on 27-28 September. This year’s iteration of the event includes an intro to physical conditioning and functional training by Alberto Brandi (Accademia Marziale Europea – Napoli) and Paolo Marando (La Sala delle Armi – Torino), a workshop on Joachim Meyer’s dussack by Andrea Conti (Scuola d’Arme Fiore dei Liberi – Roma), a sword & buckler workshop by Giorgio Fonda (SeptemCustodie – Trieste) and a workshop on the subtleties of the Meisterhau by Martin Fabian (Bratislavský šermiarsky spolok – Bratislava), as well as tournaments in longsword, sword & buckler, and messer. Personally, I am quite excited by the messer tournament–there needs to be more messer events in the world.
And on to the main event: check out the video below!
