Why "HEMA Challenge" ?
Because we want to offer a fun and challenging experience for all HEMA practitioners - both scholars and fighters - we decided to try out a new and less-traditional event format that includes activities such as a dueling game and a HEMA knowledge quiz, apart from the traditional workshops and lectures that will be held by renowned HEMA instructors;

Points will be awarded for participating in each activity and will then be used on the last day to claim prizes offered by our sponsors (prizes will be revealed during the event)

Will you accept the challenge? *
“The Challenge” is an open, mixed-weapon dueling game which allows the participants to develop their own strategy, plan matches at their own convenience and judge other players’ matches. The game starts on Friday, after the event opening and ends on Sunday afternoon. It relies mainly on fair-play, honesty, cooperation and the willingness to have a good time. Players will challenge each other to duels and rankings will be made for 4 main weapons (longsword, sidesword/arming sword, rapier and saber), as well as an additional mixed-weapon ranking. If the minimum number of participants is met for each ranking, the top 4 players (based on won duels and scored points) will be selected in order to compete against each other in the semi-finals & final duels on Sunday, for glory, fame and a symbolic prize. Detailed rule-set for dueling will be published soon.
