Welcome to HEMA Celje 2013 web site.
The gathering will take place on the 21st and 22nd September in Sports hall of Gimnazija Celje Center, Kosovelova ulica 1 in Celje.
The gathering is organised by the HEMA Federation of Slovenia.
HEMA Celje 2013 is an international gathering of individuals, who practice HEMA.
The event is planned as a meeting ground for research, learning and exchange of HEMA. Furthermore, it offers quality presentations in the context of our rich martial heritage.
The event is not exclusive to HEMA practitioners. HEMA Celje 2013 offers a lot to everyone, who wishes to deepen and share their HEMA knowledge and experience on theoretical, as well as practical level.
Even non-HEMAists are very welcome! Everyone who is attracted to HEMA or keen to learn more about this part of our common European history.
Similar gatherings over the last decade have resulted in increasing attendance, which prompted us to present ever growing HEMA community to Slovenian audience.
The last year's gathering (HEMA Celje 2012) proved that our decision was right - fifty people from seven countries spent a great HEMA weekend.
Various workshops held by internationally renowned instructors will take place over the two days of HEMA Celje 2013. Participants will have the chance to discover elements of fighting in many historically accurate ways. The programme is based on historical sources and up-to-date interpretations, as well as martially efficient approach.
