Paris HEMA Open – Ringen
As a club mainly focused on longsword, it is important for us to promote wrestling. Although wrestling is an integral part of longsword fencing, it is somewhat discarded by students of the art. Through our competition, we wish to support the development of Ringen as one of the main disciplines of medieval martial arts (note that our longsword rules allow for the use of grappling ^^).
These rules have already been reviewed by the French community and they are now open for review by the international community!
I am sharing a Word document so that anyone may suggest a mark up or insert comments. Feel free to come back to us with your review even if you are not planning to attend the Paris HEMA Open through the comment section here or on Facebook (page or by contacting me).
Registration for the Paris HEMA Open is now open: registration form here. If time allows, we may have an open mat after the competition to share thoughts. Note that you can do a combo: wrestling on Saturday, longsword on Sunday!
We hope to see you all in June, in the meantime feel free to contact us for any question.
