And ordinary spectator wants to take the sword and find out what he/she is capable of! It is possible to do in open training, which is organized by some HMB clubs. Open training is a great way to attract both new fighters and faithful fans. Of course, newcomers receive soft swords and armor. But adrenaline does not get smaller.
“Our “Wolfengarde” club do the Open training once a month.
We are looking to do weekly soft buhurt, trying to bring people into the sport by creating a less intense version that still holds the “fun” in fighting, but it feeds the interest that will possibly grow for wanting more.
The goal is to create a “fun” but challenging experience for them to get that taste of HMB and wanting more.
Jonathan told, that people might like to watch it, but the majority doesn’t want to jump into it. And soft kit public events help to bring in a bond with the steel fighters to the community to just have fun. When spectators are ready to take the next step, they will do it.
“We have a training room, but we use to do open tournaments 2 times a month to train our fighters and to show other people HMB movement. We do Knight Fights on public spaces, parks, pubs, and other places. And we are showing other Brazilian clubs the project and they are planning to do it also.
As we can see, open HMB trainings give a good effect and attract new fighters and fans, so this idea will grow in the future.
