In this episode I interviewed Jake Norwood of CKDF about Longpoint. America's premier HEMA gathering. We spoke about what goes on at Longpoint, and why people should attend Longpoint.

Jake Norwood is an internationally known competitor and instructor in Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), with over 30 medals from national and international full-contact competitions in longsword, military saber, dussack, messer, and target cutting since 2010. A multi-tour combat veteran of the 101st Airborne, Jake combines the training regimen and psychological toughness of the modern warrior to the reconstruction and physical application of Europe’s traditional fighting arts.

As an instructor, Jake has presented his aggressive, dynamic approach to Kunst des Fechtens, or the Art of Fighting, at workshops and conferences across Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. He is the head instructor at Capital Kunst des Fechtens and founder of the xKDF Network. His students are among the top competitors in the U.S. HEMA tournament scene. Jake is a former board member and the former president of the HEMA Alliance, an educational not-for-profit organization established to provide independent HEMA clubs and schools worldwide with the resources of an international cooperative.
