All in Martial Arts

"In Ferro Veritas": a swordfighting shooting

A few days ago I had the pleasure of shooting at the "Meandros HEMA Team - Piraeus".

These very devoted people are training in what is known as "Historical European Martial Arts" . This, theoretically, includes all known forms of fighting disciplines developed in the European continent. For practical reasons though, they are mainly focused on systems of armed and unarmed combat  developed from the 14th century onwards. The reason is, there are no preserved fighting manuals from earlier eras (such as, for example, the Ancient Roman period). The latest known manual dates from about 600 years ago.
