This match took place at the Blood & Iron historical martial arts school in New Westminster, BC, Canada. Richard Marsden, co-founder and principal instructor of the Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship, came for a visit to give two seminars, one on Fiore's longsword and another on Polish saber fencing. After the instruction he sparred with Lee Smith, co-founder and principal instructor of Blood & Iron.

MMA with Medieval Armor and Blunt Weapons

Every year there is a medieval style combat tournament that takes place in a castle in Europe; that means swords, full body armor, and shields. This past year we followed the American team to the event to get a sense of how intense the competition is. We saw major injuries, the kind of patriotic pride you see in the Olympics, and sparks fly - literally.

Easiest type of sword fighting to learn for beginners?

Here Lucy Easton (Schola Gladiatoria SG5) and Matt Easton (Schola Gladiatoria SG1) consider which type of sword style is easiest to learn for beginners - specifically over the course of the first two months
Sword fighting can be harder or easier to learn based on many factors, such as the weapon type, the system being studied and the teaching method.
This is NOT a statement of what styles of swordsmanship are 'best', or what you should do. Every person wanting to get into HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) should choose based on their own preferences.
Also, every person's experience in this will be different - some people prefer certain weapons and styles, some people find some weapons come more naturally to them than others. Not all people are the same of course.

Thailand's Ancient Weapon Fighting Art: Krabi-Krabong

The ancient art of Krabi-Krabong is not taught at but a hand full of places in Thailand, however Tiger offers classes three times a week.

Kru Waigoon Oh Promsuwan is a bit of an institution here at Tiger Muay Thai, heading up the Krabi-Krabong classes at Tiger.

Krabi Krabong is a weapons-based martial art originating in Thailand. It began with the Siamese military and was used by warriors on the battlefield, often alongside Muay Boran. Warriors fought for survival, thus combat techniques at the time were especially deadly, utilizing spears, swords, knives and arrows.

When unarmed, Krabi Krabong employs a variety of strikes, locks, holds, kicks and throws as well. If weapons broke for example, battle would resume using these deadly unarmed techniques. Krabi Krabong is therefore not merely some weapons exhibition, but rather a complete battlefield art teaching principles of deadly combat. It can further be applied to everyday self-defense, using everyday objects as weapons.
Kru Oh has fought in Muay Thai, Muay Boran, MMA, Boxing and has had over 60 bare knuckle fights. No wonder he is one of the most popular trainers with both staff and clients alike, he is also one of the best.

African Sword Fight

Live African Sword Fight

African Sword Fighting

Sefe Dekote (The Silent Sword) was the praise name of the hero of Soninke epic who fought against the dragon/serpent in order to save his fiancee from being sacrificed to the serpent Bida. He is without a doubt one of my favorite heroes as far as African mythology is concerned and in his honor I have named my sword style after him.
The Sefe Dekote sword style is based on several blade and stick arts practiced in Africa and in the African Diaspora. The style is based on my experiences and indeed reflects my unique experience as an African of the Diaspora/African American/Black/Moorish whatever you want to call it.
In this clip we are showing a flow drill we use in order to express the art as to explore the different techniques and movements...
Sefe Dekote is still in its infancy but it is constantly evolving and growing.
