Cáceres hosts a meeting on ancient fencing this weekend

Next weekend the III “Acero” Ancient Fencing Meeting organized by the Acero Fencing School will be held in Cáceres. Lovers of history and HEMA (English acronym for Historical European Martial Arts) will meet to share a few days in which culture, history and sport will go hand in hand.

Clubs and weapons halls from Madrid, San Sebastián, Salamanca, Toledo, Málaga, Granada and Seville will attend, in addition to the hosts, bringing together almost a hundred participants in the same space.

Among the scheduled activities, on Friday the 12th at 7:00 p.m. in the CajaAlmendralejo Assembly Hall, the conference “Conflicts, strategies and men-at-arms in late medieval Extremadura” will take place. “War in the 14th and 15th centuries” by Carlos Casillas, doctor in History from the Uex. In addition, the event will be presented by Gabriel Ferrá, graduate in History, teacher and president of the Acero Fencing School.

The next day, in the Teodoro Casado pavilion, activities will begin at 10:00. There will be long sword and gladiator seminars, as well as assaults and free combat. The great novelty of this edition is the celebration of the I Conquerors of Ancient Fencing Tournament in the rapier and long sword modalities. It will bring together around thirty participants from all over the country, in which the participation of Cristina Arias stands out, the only female shooter in this sport in Extremadura at 23 years old.

Likewise, to bring this sport closer to all the curious who come to the pavilion that same morning, there will be free long sword initiation workshops at 12:00 and 18:00.

Ancient fencing is gaining more followers every day among lovers of history and combat sports.
