I just love so much that suddenly everyone’s a Star Wars fan. Is one of the most amazing things to ever happen. I’m not even kidding, this is not sarcasm. I just generally love that Star Wars is everywhere, that little kids are getting to see Star Wars, that grandpas are wearing SW shirts, that there is complete families going to see the movie and getting together to watch the six movies to watch the new one, that middle aged people is talking about SW, that girls are being treated good by most of the fandom and media because we! are! getting! a! new! star! wars! movie! this week and suddenly, we are like some big nerd family. It’s beautiful.
“Back to the Source” It’s a real honour to appear alongside many wonderful members of the HEMA community as part of this new documentary by Cédric Hautevilleon Historical European Martial Arts! In a conversation that spans continents, we talk about our growing community, combining scholarship with athleticism and the challenges of reviving centuries-old source material into living martial art systems. For anyone struggling to explain HEMA (and why you love it), here is your lexicon! Post Note: I came across this later, renowned swordsman Oz talking on his YouTube channel about the awesome documentary and just how special it (and the making of it) actually is.
