There was Horseback Archery at Red Colt Equestrian Cooperative, British Columbia, Canada.


Romania held its first ever international HEMA event, with tournaments, workshops, lectures, vendors and an all important afterparty!


Arguably the biggest event of the weekend was the 16th HEMAC Dijon 2017 gathering in Dijon, France. Dijon is one of the oldest and largest HEMA events in the world and this was a great year for women, with five female instructors teaching systems such as French wrestlingmilitary sabre, dagger, bastoncello, and Fiore’s swordsmanship. They even featured on French news TV.
