Dear all,

On November 3, just like last year we will offer free live streaming of the Swordfish 2012 Joachim Nilsson Memorial Tournaments!

The Swordfish tournaments of 2012 are some of the largest tournaments in the modern HEMA community, with the open longsword alone featuring a record 82 fighters from all over Europe and North America.

To see the list of all fighers follow this link, see if your favourite fighter will participate this year!

Time: ca17.30 local time. Fights start around 18.30, preceded by introduction, rules examination and interviews with fighters, organizers, instructors etc.

Tournaments featured:
Grappling (NEW! 3 weight divisions)
Rapier & dagger
Sword & buckler
Sabre/single hand weapons
Ladies longsword
Open longsword

Commentators will like last year be Scott Hellroth and Matt Galas, but this year they will  be joined by specific expert commentators for the different weapon styles.

This years live cast promises to be even more ambitious than last year! We have an even better camera crew on hand, who usually works with live casting top national sports event such as the Swedish Elite hockey series.

We are also working together with the dutch companies Malienkolders and Mblades to provide a professional presentation system for every fight (this will also feature in the pool fights wich will be available for view on youtube after the event).

In order to make all of this happen we would gratefully receive your help!

In order to donate and participate in the competition for a t-shirt signed by all Swordfish tournament winners, see this link!


We hope that many of you will follow us via our live cast as we see some of the best fencers of our day compete in the Swordfish tournaments of 2012!
