This episode is the first episode from Longpoint. Nina Cafaro is your host, and I was her first interview. So you get to know a little more about me and my own HEMA journey. Patrick McCaffrey studies Fiore with L'Arte Della Bellica in Kutztown, PA. He has been studying HEMA for just over a year, and regularly visits other schools and groups. At L'Arte Della Bellica he runs the Abrazare (grappling) and Daga (Dagger) classes on Sundays, providing a basis of understanding and conditioning for swordfighting.

The HEMA-Cast is brought to you in part by Sword Carolina. Sword Carolina offers an online HEMA school, as well as The Academy for study group and club leaders. Sword Carolina can be found online at http://swordcarolina.com/

For our last episode before Longpoint we are finishing up the series of interviews with Sword Carolina and including an interview with the founder of MEMAG.

Matthew Stinson interviewed Ashley Polasek of Sword Carolina. Ashley is a Women's Longsword competitor and Gold medal winning student of Sword Carolina. She also has a podcast of her own called the Baker Street Babes, an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans dedicated to approaching the fandom from a female point of view, as well as engaging in fun, lively conversations about the canon, film and television adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work, and associated topics. Her podcast is available on iTunes.

Cory Winslow is the founder of the Medieval European Martial Arts Guild, or M.E.M.A.G. He is also a HEMA Alliance Certified Instructor and the Vice Director of the HEMAA Curriculum Council. He has been seriously researching and training in Historical European Martial Arts since 2003. In 2006 he founded the first MEMAG training school in Salisbury Maryland with his assistant instructor Joshua Reptsik and continued to teach regular classes at the Peninsula Fight School of MEMAG until early 2014, when he and his wife Betsy established the Blue Ridge Sword School in Luray, VA where they currently instruct regular classes.

I'd like to apologize for the tardiness of this podcast. I am still getting used to the amount of time it takes to edit the raw interviews into something manageable. I personally found this podcast difficult to edit because of the length and variety of topics covered. I feel that this is the best podcast that I could release while still being genuine and letting the interviewees speak for themselves. Because of this the podcast is slightly longer than intended, but not quite long enough to be two separate episodes.

Today's podcast focuses in on my home HEMA club, L'Arte Della Bellica. I interviewed the founder of L'Arte Della Bellica, Brian Miller, as well as two founding members of the club. Violett Shaw, and Joshua Gieringer.

L'Arte Della Bellica can be contacted through their website or facebook page.
