Swords Are Great

December 31 2016

I do swordfighting. Almost every week I go to fight with some of the loveliest people I know, using methods hundreds of years old. It's a great community full of enthusiastic, skilled people working really hard at a shared interest - researching and practicing historical european martial arts (HEMA). Some people think it's a bit rough, which it is, but it's also a great way to make friends. As I write this, I have a fair few bruises, each of which with a happy memory attached. If you're looking for a hobby I can't recommend it enough (and would be happy to put you in touch with some good places to find out more!)

When I'm not swordfighting I like to make art. Feel free to email me if you'd like to see my weird landscapes and photos of sheep :) or if you practice hema! I do longsword, messer, dagger and wrestling mostly!
