BOHEMA: First Harvest

September 7 - September 8

€40 – €110

In cooperation with HVN (Netherlands) and EHMS (Finland), we are excited to invite you to our first international beginner-and-basic level longsword tournament – BOHEMA*: First Harvest.

On September 7 and 8, in the city of Prague, Czech Republic.

Our clubs plan this event to create an entry-level friendly environment where students from all over Europe can meet their peers in a big, exciting event and fight, fight, fight! We have NO CAP on the number of participants.

But who are the beginners and regulars? It is up to the instructors to decide. Recomended bar is stunts with about up to 3 years of practice. We can tell you who are not: people who have won medals in beginner, open, or advanced competitions. We will have open and advanced events later for you.

What about women, is the tournament mixed? Yes, it is. And there are no beginner restrictions for women fencers. Please, come and fight as much as you want. We need more of you in HEMA.

On Saturday – The Tournament.
Large pools of 7 fencers, everyone goes to eliminations, final pools, and unlimited sparrings on both days of the event. You will probably have some of the best judging possible with all instructors judging the fights.

On Sunday – Sparring Games.
Spar as long and as much as you can with instructors and other students. Participate in different sparring games until you faint from exhaustion.

Epic Location:
We have booked the modern, stellar, slick, and comfortable Repy Arena for the event. A cafe with fresh meals and a hotel with a sauna and swimming pools will be at your service. If you get a hotel room there, the tournament hall will be just a 1-minute lazy walk from your bed.

Help with equipment:
If, as sometimes happens with beginners, you lack any equipment, we will provide it.

All swords will be provided by Kvetun Armoury.

Rules will be announced a bit later, but the event will be conducted in the spirit and traditions of the Nordic scene. Please expect high-quality strike requirements, afterblows, ring outs, wrestling (without throws), and other amenities.

Entry fee:
Saturday Beginner Tournament: 110 EUR
Sunday Sparring Games: 40 EUR (all levels of fencer can apply)

Yeah, a bit pricey. Yet, all staff will be paid, judges’ flights compensated, the arena is epic, and amenities are presented. Let’s grow more professional together. You are going to love it, I promise!

Registration is open via HEMAGON until August 7th. Refunds are possible up to the end of the registration period.

Looking forward to meeting you at BOHEMA*: First Harvest!
