The FEEH (Spanish Historical Fencing Federation) holds it's first international event the 12th, 13th and 14th of OCTOBER 2012 and the whole international HEMA community is invited.

The event is focused on fencers who already have certain experience and would like to deepen their knowledge on certain weapons or styles. However no experience is really required to attend.

There will be nothing too fancy, Longsword, Rapier, Dagger, Messer, Ringen and Double Weapons, mainly, Free Fencing all day long and a small tournament (Rapier and Longsword) but with two levels for each weapon, a basic one to get it's working principles and a more advanced one for veteran fencers, or just fencers that have already taken the first class (although this is, of course, not mandatory) and wish to focus more on that weapon or style.

Confirmed workshops thus far are:

Ringen and Hand to Hand - Jaime Girona
Rapier by Joachim Meyer - Roman Vucajnk
Time and Measure Practical Application with Longsword - Pablo Moya Montes
Double Wield with Renaissance weapons - Eugenio García-Salmones
Lecküchner's Messer - Alex Kiermeyer

There will be two tournaments; a Longsword Tournament and a Rapier Tournament.

There will also be a guided tour around Palma de Mallorca's beautiful streets, including cultural visits and of course free fencing.

In this he has enjoyed collaborating with the Meyer Frei Fechter Guild and in May 2013 he became a Fechter of the MFFG. Recently, he has begun researching Meyer's dagger quite systematically using the same method he applied to his staff teachings.

Currently, he is writing on a series of books which will explore the teachings of Joachim Meyer, in collaboration with researcher friends in the HEMA community.
