“Swords of Cygnus” has toured internationally as a fresh UK team for the past year, so it has grown and made an incredible progress taking bronze, silver and gold medals from most categories across Europe.
During the tournament there also were women’s profights and the “Longsword” duel category. For Marjolaine that was the first time she tried a profight, and she told, it was as hard as expected. “Team fights are so much easier! But it was a very good experience!”, – she resumed.
This was our first tournament as a full Dutch women’s buhurt team. There were two fighters who have never been in the list, and we were there to test the waters. Before you can grow skills, you must have a team first and this year we finally have a team.
It was a big pleasure to talk about full-contact fights in armor with such a charming women. And HMBIA News wishes each of them personally and to their team bright combats and resounding victories!
