A four-day summer longsword camp took place in Piraeus for the first time in Greece.

The fencers were trained under particularly harsh conditions, because of high temperatures, in the use of the longsword of the Fellowship of Lichtenauer for six hours every day. There was also a presentation on hoplomachia using the Byzantine Paramerium (saber).

Regarding the longsword, attendants were trained on techniques from the Codex Wallerstein (1470). The second day, the fencers were trained in the techniques documented in the Codex Danzig (1452) by Peter von Danzig zum Ingolstadt.
