The lecture was attended by the senior university students that major in fencing. The students attended the evolution of the Art of Fencing from antique, to the middle ages, to the Renaissance, the creation of the first Fencing Guilds and the first national schools, as well as its evolution from a martial art to a sport to an Olympic sport.
The lecture was followed by video recordings of ‘Leontes’ Hellenic HEMA association members performing various fencing techniques from different historic periods, and competing in Historical Fencing club tournaments.
We thank Mr. C. Tsolakis for his assistance and the invitation to the University of Athens.
