« skrivet: 2010-09-22, 09:54:45 »
Robert Molin of GHFS participated in three competitions during a HEMA event in Mora,Sweden. As has becoming increasingly commong, historical Belgian fencing guild rules are being used for HEMA competitions at Swedish events.

Robert won one longsword competition and one dussack competition.

Robert also fought a Last Man Standing tournament fight, this time agains Martin Wallgren of MnHFS. Martin won with a beautiful geischlern strike.

The Last manStanding tournament is a tournament hosted by MnHFS that runs for a duration of a year, with 16 Swedish fighters participating. In order to simulate a fight with sharp weapons, the fight is only fought to the first valid hit, as opposed to a more modern format of scoring points during rounds that is used in many other tournaments.
