Zwaard & Steen at Castlefest
Zwaard & Steen is a sports club with a passion for history, martial arts and physical fitness. Internationally, our sport is known as HEMA: Historical European Martial Arts. Practicing HEMA is a combination of sports, movement and delving into the old martial arts as they were practiced in the middle ages. A unique experience where gaining knowledge goes hand in hand with getting fit and more confident. For over 15 years, we have been practicing longsword, dagger and wrestling techniques which are based on medieval German manuscripts like the Codex Ringeck and the Codex von Danzig. Drop by our stand for workshops or demonstrations or visit our club in Nieuwegein or Rotterdam for a free trial.
