This week's episode is a special guest Host episode with Matthew Stinson of Steelwind Fencing Academy from Jacksonville, FL. Matthew recently interviewed Aaron Shober of Sword Carolina. He was kind enough to share the interview with me to get it out to the rest of the HEMA Community. 

Aaron stumbled onto HEMA in 2010 and quickly became passionate about it.  He practiced largely on his own for the next year, through books, DVDs, online resources, and events, before starting his own group in a local park.  In September 2012, Aaron leased a Main Street space and opened up a dedicated HEMA school, one of only a few in the country.  He is blessed to be a professional HEMA instructor, teaching and training as his full-time career.

Aaron has taught classes at events such as IGX, SoCal, and his own Study in Steel. He has won medals in Longsword, Dussack, and Dagger and has helped coach several students to win or place in tournaments.  Sword Carolina’s YouTube channel is recognized as one of the best free resources to start to learn HEMA, and Sword Carolina Online is the first online school of HEMA available.  Through Sword Carolina and Sword Carolina Online, Aaron now has students around the world.
