This autumn you have a unique opportunity – to take part in the first ever Bulgarian HEMA tournament event, Sofia CrossSwords 2022.
We have prepared for you two very special tournaments in two days – a familiar ruleset, but unique formats and weapons.
We will begin with the classic Longsword competition on Saturday, but with a twist – no matter your skill and luck, you won’t go back home with just a couple of fights. Each participant will have at least 9 matches and will have the privillige to judge just as many.
And on Sunday, we will provide all participants with the chance to compete with the SIGI Arming swords in the first of its kind single Аrming sword tournament.
You can compete in one or both tourneys, and there will be free sparring space on Sunday.
Currently all Longsword places are taken and all future applicants will be going into a waiting list.
We have 1 spot left for the Arming Sword tournament.
If you register will we contact you via email.
