Wisby mediveal week 2008 After the manual


There will be chances for authorizations and just practice. If there is anyone who wants to organize any kind of fencing please contact me as soon as you can so that we can make arrangements.

Are you curious about what we do? Don’t hesitate to ask, only problem you will face is to make us stop talking when it comes to fencing!

Responsible for this year’s fencing is Master Arenwald. Please contact him if you have any questions about fencing.


The week of the Double Wars event offers fencers of all levels opportunity to train and compete in all fencing forms. Basic and advanced classes in footwork, balance and timing and different weapons combinations make the event one of the richest offerings of fencing activity in Drachenwald. Fencers of all levels, and with interest in all types of fencing from light blades through to schlager and cut and thrust should find something to interest them during the week.

This year also features a programme of activities for younger fencers in age groups 10-14. To participate in training activities young fencers will need a sturdy tunic of densely woven cloth (linen and cotton drill, or equivalent) and a fencing mask. Masks will be available for loan, though numbers are limited.

Fencing is planned for every day of the event. Training activities will be held in the small list in the listfield when the other parts of the listfield are occupied by other activities.

Armour inspection for tourneys and prize playing commences half an hour before the listed starting time of the event.


SCHEDULE for the week will be found through the schedule – link!
