Brezelhau 2024

May 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free – €20

The Michigan Medieval Combat Association invites sword fighters of all skill levels to take part in our yearly HEMA tournament!

This year we’ll be continuing to use our fechtschule ruleset based on tournaments from 16th Century Germany. The most notable quirk of these tournaments, is there’re no thrusting attacks, and ONLY strikes to the head. The various schools in attendance will be the guilds (teams). Each bout you win earns you “gulden” (coins). The two tournaments will be STEEL LONGSWORD, and LEATHER DUSSACK.

This is intended to be a friendly, more fun and casual atmosphere, without the heavy stresses, (or price tag), of bigger tournaments.

There will be prizes for:

– Guild who brings the most combatants
– Most coins earned (individual)
– Most coins earned (by guild)
– Most exemplary fighter

In honor of the infamous illustration in Jörg Wilhalm Hutter’s 1523 combat treatise “Kunst zu Augspurg”, which depicts a random pretzel vendor amongst the swordsmen, we will be serving pretzels at the tournament!

10am: registration/equipment check
12pm: tournament begins
