Episode 28 - HEMA Friends
I have made many friends in HEMA, but today's episode features 3 friends that I made fairly early on in my HEMA Career. John Morahn, Greg Fasolino, and Nick Murro are three people that I respect and admire, and because of that, I wanted to interview them and share their stories with the rest of the HEMA community. John Morahn is an instructor with Western Swordsmanship Technique and Research (WSTR) out of Willimantic, CT. At IGX 2016 and 2017 he taught Mair's Scythe, a non traditional Western Martial Arts weapon. You can find more information about WSTR at https://sites.google.com/site/wstrinfo/. You can find John Morahn on Facebook and Twitter. Greg Fasolino is a member of the Long Island Historical Fencing Society on Long Island New York. He was among the first tournament fights I ever had at IGX 2015. I got to interview him about being a Wisdom League fighter at IGX 2016. You can find more information about Long Island Historical Fencing at http://www.longislandlongsword.com. Where they also have information about Long Island Point, part of the LHFL. Nick Murro is the instructor for MEMAG Crossing Fight School. Nick reached out to my club shortly after we were established and has always helped us to be as technical and good sword fighters as we could be. He was my paired technique partner at Longpoint 2017, and we got to sit down and talk about what it's like to be instructors for HEMA. You can find more information about MEMAG Crossing Fight School at http://www.memag.net/crossingfight.html To add some more community involvement, I'd like to have our listeners record themselves reading the opening and/or closing script to be included in the episode.
