Modern Day Knight: Female Wins Longsword Competition At World Invitational Tournament August 26, 2013 By The Geekocracy
Modern day female longsword expert wins the The Longsword Competition at the World Invitationals.
Trained in European martial arts as she puts it (When you think ‘martial arts’ it usually brings up images of Far East fighting styles, so this was interesting to hear European sword fighting described in this way), and using swords that she herself designed (specifically for her style of fighting and longsword competition), Samantha Swords is a girl after my own ‘Geek’ heart.
See her video interview below complete with sword play demonstrations and training…
Cool Alert – her description of the custom and very flexible fighting armor she had specifically designed for her is cool.
