This is just a quick teaser episode until I get a full episode up this weekend. This will be up for a limited time just to whet your whistle while I work on the next episode.

In this episode I interviewed a couple of amazing ladies who are a part of the HEMA community.

Christy Conley is a massage therapist and is working with HEMA fighters to reduce stress and injury by providing her services at HEMA events. Her website is http://www.unwindthehema.com/ And her business number is (607) 862-6863 or, if you're feeling like a cheesy comercial, (607)UNBOUND. Her facebook page is not yet live but should be up shortly.

Nina Cafaro is a graphic designer and member of my home club of L'Arte Della Bellica, and helps me with a lot of design work and helps to keep me on task. If I uploaded this post correctly, the PDF of my home club's flyer was designed by Nina, and she is working on designing a HEMA-Cast logo for me.

On April 23rd and 24th I had the opportunity to go to Springeck, an event in Wanaque, NJ, hosted by the NJ Historical Fencing Association. I had a blast free-sparring, learning and even got the chance to interview several people over the weekend.

In today's episode, I interviewed Tom and Zack from the NJ Historical Fencing Association, Aaron Pynenberg from the Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association in Appleton, and Jeremiah Backhaus from the Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association in West Bend.

Aaron Pynenberg is the founder of the Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association, as well as the Historical Fencing affiliates. He has been involved in HEMA for about 15 years or so. At Springeck he taught a class "Finishing the Dagger fight" where he used modern self defense with historical technique to stabilize, control, and finish an opponent where the historical masters left off.

Jeremiah Backhaus is a Provost in the Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association. At Springeck this year he taught a class on Ringen called "Wrestling Away," where he introduced techniques and basics for those who feel "Ringen is not for me." 

You can visit the NJ HFA website here, and the WHFA website here. The Historical Fencing Affiliate's Charter can be found here.

An introductory episode where I introduce myself, and some of my goals for the HEMA-Cast.

About myself: I am a relatively new member of HEMA having started in July of 2015 with L'Arte Della Bellica, a Fiore school in Kutztown, PA. I decided to start this podcast because I personally listen to podcasts and wanted to listen to a podcast about something I'm very passionate about, HEMA.

About the Podcast: The goal of the HEMA-cast is to have a dialogue within the HEMA community, as well as provide another way to introduce HEMA to a greater general audience. This will be done by interviewing members of HEMA about themselves and their studies, talking about events with event organizers, and having roundtable discussions about important topics.
