Axel Pettersson wins two tournaments in a row
« skrivet: 2010-03-28, 17:01:22 »
On 21 March, 2010, The Hammertetz Open International Tournament was battled out in Houston Texas, USA. The competition consisted of two separate torunaments, fought directly after each other. The first - possibly the first dussack tournament in several hundred years - followed historical Belgian fencing rules. The second - a longsword tournament - was fought with synthetic wasters according to WMAC and HEMAA rules.

Both tournaments were won by Axel Pettersson of Gothenburg Historical Fencing School, GHFS. Not a small achievment considering some of the world's best HEMAists participated and that the fighting went on for the most part of the day.

A big congratulations to Axel!
