Many Cateran Society members live far away from any of the major HEMA events and rarely have the opportunity to travel for tournament competition. In this situation, we encourage our members to look for other opportunities to test their skills.
In April 2016, the Historical Combat League held a foam weapons tournament. Although these weapons are much lighter and faster than real broadswords, it is still possible to use them with historical broadsword techniques if you choose to.
Two of our members from Broadsword Academy Manitoba competed in the tournament, and Level IV Mentor J.Maas was the winner of the event. You can see both members fighting each other in this bout.
Thanks to both of them for representing the Cateran Society, and congratulations to J.Maas for the victory!
