The beauty of posting your texts on HROARR is that we then can have lots of HEMA articles published under various categories, even quite specific ones, where people post their thoughts and research, and all of it is searchable for the whole community. This makes everything so much easier to find, while it exposes your ideas to almost the whole community and creates a synergy effect where people work together internationally, across all borders. This is so much better than having everything spread out on various blogs, forums and club/organization sites or even unsearchable pdfs or word docs. Note that you are welcome to post even old texts too. You don't have to write new stuff. The only requirement is that it is of interest to the HEMA community. So, if you are interested in joining the some 20 current authors on HROARR, then all you need to do is to register at and then let me know so I can give you rights to post articles, reviews, news items and events info.

Roger Norling is an instructor on Joachim Meÿer's Halben Stangen (Quarterstaff) with the Gothenburg Free Fencer's Guild (GFFG).

Starting with the Gothenburg Historical Fencing School in 2008, he is since 2015 a member of the GFFG. His main focus in his research is the "Kunst des Fechtens" and primarily the longsword, dussack and polearms. He has been focusing on the works of Joachim Meÿer since 2009. 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.

The upcoming two years he will be teaching Meÿer quarterstaff, dusack and longsword at various HEMA events in Europe and the USA. For more about this, read his instructor's profile.
